Student's Of The Week

A-Gl Student of the Week

The student of the week is Cameron Donahue nominated by Mrs. Longoria.


Cameron is a responsible, intelligent, polite, and generous young man. Once he finished his project, he was kind enough to help students who were having issues with their project. He helped them understand how to use the technology required for the project. He did it all with a smile on his face. – Louisa Longoria

Go-O Student of the Week

The student of the week is Blake Johnson nominated by Mrs. Miller.


Blake is ALWAYS doing the right thing, even when there is no one to hold him accountable. He is always respectful to teachers and peers and is willing to help other students. He works hard in class and is truly a model of what it means to be Fair and Responsible.

– Erin Miller

P-Z Student of the Week

The student of the week is Thomas Womack nominated by Pauline Pruitt and Guy Chalhoub.

"Students were taking a test in math, and a student was present who had been absent a couple of days. Thomas offered his notes to the student (on an open notes test!) rather than use them himself. What a selfless act of kindness!."- Mrs. Pruitt and Mr. Chalhoub
