Tag of Honor Recap

Friday was a successful day for all of the ceremonies that were held. Students certainly beamed with pride as did their parents. There were some ideas that were suggested to improve this program that we will look to build upon. Finally the success of this event genuinely requires a collaborative effort from so many individuals...so thanks to the following for their contributions:



  • Student Activities Committee
  • homeroom and related areas teachers for completion and submission of templates
  • front office for greeting visitors/signing students out
  • Connie P and Kris Spitzform for their work with the hospitality tables
  • Custiodial staff for setting up the mini theatre
  • B. Jackson for ensuring this information was available on our website
  • A. Adkins for taking photos
  • A. Adkins, B. Poore, and E. Perkins for preparing tags between ceremonies
  • E. Burwick for organizing tags/templates and many behind the scenes efforts



If I have omitted anyone please let me know and we will be sure that you are honored and recognized.
