Recognizing students!

Middle school students have been busy wrapping up their year with final assessments, projects, reflections and awards. On Wednesday in Community Time, we held our first ever Learner Profile Awards ceremony.  Every month we have given out a learner profile award to a student in each grade and this culminated in the assembly at which 10 students from each grade were chosen by teachers to receive specific Learner Profile certificates and PE shirts with their profile trait printed on the back. The Learner Profile Award winners are:
