Message from the Principal

Happy Thanksgiving!
 
This week we held our first, hopefully annual, Turkey Trot. It was a wonderful event with many of our students choosing to participate. Congratulations to our winners, who are listed below. Thank you to our wellness staff for taking this event from conception to fruition.  A few moments stick out in my mind from the Turkey Trot.  

Of course we had the athletic challenge of the students finishing as winners or near the winning time, but more than that was the spirit of the student body. Top finishers were cheered, but those who finished near the end, or struggled to make it across the finish line were encouraged with cheers of "you can do it" and "just a little more, you are doing great". Staff members ran the last few yards with students and one group of girls helped a student up who fell and ran with him until he was comfortable running alone. I can speak for both Ms. Nali and myself as I say that that spirit and kindness is what we are thankful for this year. 
 
Turkey Trot Winners:
8th Grade Boy - Aiden Ryan
8th Grade Girl - Jackie Earner
 
7th Grade Boy - Trevor Grafton
7th Grade Girl - Elizabeth Lindo
