They succeed in school by doing their assignments well and on time. They do their share of group projects. They go to practices, tutoring and meetings consistently. Teachers, please send nominations for responsible students to the Library Media Center staff. Those nominees will be able to choose a prize at the end of the month.

Nominees:
Jesse Matthews
Trinity Wilkins
Aaron Watson-Blow
Summer Smith
