For happiness day, we had to recognize one happy young fella that roams the 6A hallway. Our cheerful cheetah of the week approaches each new day with positive attitude and a smile. His kindness and respect towards others is obvious to see, he is our Andrew Le!!
6B: Brenton Eddleman
Our student of the week,
Shows such class and integrity
The teachers will not have to seek
To find the student who sometimes is so witty
6B student of the week is none other than…Brenton Eddleman!
7A: Byron Cruz
The 7A Flying Squirrel of the Week cruises through the 8 keys with ease. He is unfailingly kind and generous. He cruises along steadily in his classes. He keeps a smile on everyone's faces. Keep cruising Byron Cruz; 7A is crazy happy to have you on our team!
7B: Hailey Haase
This week we chased our 7B superhero like a rising star,
Their dart always hits the bullseye of good character,
We don’t want to pile on, but to us it is black and white,
The smart choice this week is Hailey Haase,
You are a great student and tremendous teammate.

She is conscientious, funny, fun, creative, a great writer, a good friend, full of integrity and OUTSTANDING in the 8 Keys. She models all keys daily.

If you haven’t heard about our OREO Sweepstakes you may want to ask your student.
Each week we ask a trivia question and usually a riddle to get a phone number to call. The first homeroom in each grade level that calls the correct phone number with the answer wins a box of Oreo Cookies!
