*Everyone was really great at Belmont Park! Students were kind, respectful, and we even had people from Belmont Park compliment our students and say they were the nicest group of students!
*Lots of students were very interested in starting an Amnesty International Club at our school! Sinqi has already taken the lead! Jane expressed a lot of interest as well! Great job standing up for human rights.
*Peyton, Evonna, Jessica, and Hugo created a proposal for a 9th grade team day and presented to Mr. Alden! We love when you all take the lead and design activities!
*Kevyn did a great job last week working after school during office hours. Great job!
