Student Shout-Outs!
We want to celebrate our students and for our students to celebrate each other. Give a Shout-Out to a fellow classmate!

Kyrie Hart
I was starting to panic, and Kyrie calmed me down and helped me feel more comfortable with what was going on.

Avery Zielbauer
Avery is such a great student always offering to help and make sure you're okay. She always has a smile on her face and is super positive all the time. She loves to help the teacher with tasks and she is always ready to be there to help.

Alex Olkhov
Alex has been consistently demonstrating his commitment and perseverance this school year, despite having a rigorous schedule and out-of-school responsibilities. Furthermore, he has not allowed this demanding schedule to take away from his empathy and kindness.

Raihan Sen
He accepts people for who they are.

Lucy Kovack
This student has helped me open up about my feelings and really supported me even though I had only met her a month ago. 

Ethen Reyna
Telling other students to be on task when off task.

Chase is always quick to help out and to try and put a smile on your face. He is very kind and enjoys helping people.

Autumn bogart
Autumn is very kind we became friends in a second! She is very sweet and kind she is always respectful and ready to make new friends she is honest and if I could I would select all the character elements. She stands up for people when other people are being mean.
