Weekly Bulletin - October 27, 2019

SPIN THE WHEEL IS BACK!!

For our new format this year, we are drawing student names from a kindness/good deed jar filled by staff. When staff see our students doing something kind and positive, their name is entered in the jar with a short explanation of the act of kindness. As in the past, these assemblies will occur every month. Our leadership students did a fantastic job of helping Mr. Ernst lead this event. Congrats to our winners this month!



It's great to see our awesome staff members being recognized as well.
