Hayden's Challenge

Random acts of KINDNESS are happening all around Tison! The following nominations for Hayden's Challenge were all submitted during the week of Nov 11th-15th:

  1. Beth Watson nominated Austin Dirickson, Rodrigo Gonzales, and Brooks Kerbow for loading Center of Hope goods into her car.

  2. Mrs. Durant nominated Landry Precure and Moriah Martin for welcoming a new student to class.
  3. Mrs. Durant nominated Rylan Todd for using his own time to remove darts and pencils from the ceiling around the school.
  4. Myleigh nominated Bailey Whisenhunt for always being there through the good and the bad. She is not only a classmate, but a best friend. She is always there to help with anything. Thanks for helping me, Bailey.
  5. Mrs. Brown nominated Mauricio Palomares. He took time to ask if she needed help, and helped her move a stack of chairs into the elevator.
  6. Nurse Kloven nominated Wyatt Thompson for showing kindness every single day to another student without being asked.
  7. Shane nominated Annabelle because she is nice and stops bullying.

This challenge was created in honor of Hayden Walker, who took the initiative to help pick up trash one afternoon while waiting for his bus. "Hayden's Challenge" is a way to recognize students, teachers, and staff each week who go out of their way to be kind and make Tison a better place.

Nomination forms are in the front office. You may nominate students, staff, and teachers. Please turn the forms in to Mrs. Brown or Mrs. Kelly.
