Maddie Johnson showed courage during a feedback session at The Summit. In a group of teachers, Maddie was brave as she spoke on behalf of the entire student community. Thank you for helping us grow and making our school a better place!

Amaya King demonstrated kindness when she helped a peer in Spanish class. She not only sat next to the student, but stayed with them to check their work and make sure they had understood everything.

Sydney Wood demonstrated KINDNESS when she gave up a paper topic she’d chosen to another student who wanted it and chose a different one for herself. Way to go, Sydney!

Charlie Ferris and Leland Raines showed KINDNESS when they cleaned up a mess lfet behind in the upper school.
