Kanga Care Clinic

Hayden's Challenge

Congratulations to Dylan Hightower for being nominated for "Hayden's Challenge"! The person who nominated Dylan said that he went out of his way -- twice -- to check on a friend in need.


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

CORE VALUE FOR NOVEMBER: HONOR

"Duty, honor, country. Those three hallowed words reverently dictate what you ought to be, what you can be, what you will be."
