“Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken winged bird that cannot fly.”—Langston Hughes

Kudos to Hope Kramer and Tyler Green for their TEAMWORK and KINDNESS in cleaning up a spill in the Commons on Friday afternoon. 

Colby Dry, Brevin Wilson, Devin Bell, Claire Schafer, Caroline DuMond, Olivia Equan, Brandon Bartelli, and Madison Bryan all showed passion in attending the Middle School Assembly last week to share tips on study habits, friendship challenges, and time-management.  They gave up time during their lunch to share their wisdom with the younger students.  We had a follow-up advisory lesson where the students had a deeper discussion after hearing their advice, so we truly appreciated having them share their experiences.

Joseph Earl Levy displayed TEAMWORK in moving some desks for the English department!

Marco Papis helped the College Counseling Team with unloading supplies from the admission deans panel -thank you for your kindness!

Robert Walley has demonstrated kindness all year by offering to help teachers and students when needed. Just last week, he noticed a faculty member moving around large desks, and Robert quickly asked if he could assist them. Way to be a gentleman, Robert!
