Harshini Gadudasu demonstrated TEAMWORK, PASSION and RESPECT when she created a note taking guide for underclassmen in a difficult course. This is a gift that will be used for years! Thank you so much, Harshini!

Nicole Ratterman, Max Wolf, Sun Lee, Rayyan Syed, Alexa Miranda, and Maddie Rizzo showed KINDNESS by helping Mrs. Oswald and Mrs. Mattsson carry heavy gardening supplies up from their cars!

Gavin Powell displayed KINDNESS and RESPECT when he went the extra mile to help a volleyball official (who showed up for a volleyball game that was moved to another day) get in touch with the athletic administration for guidance. Way to go, Gavin.
