From the principal....

One of the new things we have done this year is to add a virtual assembly to our Hero Hour every Friday. During this assembly, we say the pledge, have a moment of silence, play the Star-Spangled Banner (required by a new Arkansas law), and then we have some FUN CELEBRATING our students and staff!

Both students and staff can nominate anyone in our buidling for a "My Hero" award. Members of our school community can go online and complete a My Hero award for a person that he/she sees doing something that expemplifies our HERO standards. We also list all the birthdays for the upcoming week, and then make any announcements for students or staff.

One Friday a month, we will announce our "Heroes of the Month" which are selected by each team of teachers. The team of teachers select a student that has gone above and beyond in his/her actions & display of character. For both of these awards, and all those yet to come during our quarterly assemblies, students receive lanyard flair! They love getting the buttons - so be sure and ask your student about them if you see some flair.

We record each assembly and post it to a password protected Google Classroom. If you ever want to watch an assembly, just ask your student to log in to his/her advisory classroom, and the teachers are posting them there.
