Joey Looney displayed TEAMWORK when he handed out the lessons and greeted everyone prior to Precalculus class yesterday.

Isabella Moore showed her INTEGRITY when she pointed out to her teacher that a student had left a vocabulary assessment on the desk, which could tempt the most honest academicians to look up the answers in advance. Thank you, Isabella, for your scrupulousness.

Nate Woolwine demonstrated RESPECT when he pointed out that a teacher had not accurately updated his grade in the gradebook. Thank you for being awesome, Nate
