“Great leaders are almost always great simplifiers, who can cut through argument, debate, and doubt to offer a solution everybody can understand.”— General Colin Powell
Hayden Bullard demonstrated INTEGRITY when he came to see the teacher of a class he’s missed to offer his homework (in case it was collected) and to find out how to catch up. Awesome!
Sarah Dockery showed KINDNESS when she made cupcakes for her advisory and brought them in for everyone to eat.
Brittany Nozet demonstrated teamwork when one of the her fellow advisees couldn’t bring breakfast in for the advisory on her allotted day, and Brittany stopped to get breakfast for everyone to help out her friend! Way to go Brittany!
Danny Yessayan showed KINDNESS when he cleaned a lab table in Mrs. Smith’s room when someone after lunch left a mess! Thanks so much Danny
