Word of the Week - Integrity

REMINDER: Each week we give six students a backpack with a gift certificate in it when they can tell us the word, what it means and use it correctly in a sentence.

Please post the word of the week green paper in your classroom.

Last week's winners for the word portion: Amber Black (12), Jessica Celia (12), Robert Cruz (11), Peter Hertzon (9), Khristian Pina (11),

Please take a minute to recognize these students if you have them in your class

On Friday, CV Leadership will hold their monthly meeting at LQHS. The 50 people in the program will mostly be in the culinary lecture hall and dining room.
