Kids At Hope Pledges Kick Off 2015 - 2016

In addition to our daily recitation of our Pledges of Allegiance to the US & TX Flags, we have also incorporated the "Kids At Hope," pledge into our daily morning routine. This pledge was introduced to us by our Convocation 2015 Speaker, Dr. Rick Miller, who has done extensive research and work on the power of self affirmation. The pledge we are saying school-wide each morning is: " I am a Kid At Hope. I am talented, smart, and capable of success. I have dreams for the future, and I will climb to reach those goals and dreams every day. All children are capable of success, no exceptions."

Participants get to run or walk 5K around the park at 7:30AM, then they have to ride 5K in roller coasters to get their medals. Ten staff members and twelve students have signed up to participate in this event.
