Prides of the Week and Leader of the Pack

Prides of the Week and Leader of the Pack

September 26, 2016


At Monday's morning meeting, our "Prides" of the Week and our Leader of the Pack were recognized.  The "Prides" of the Week are students who exemplify the ProjectPride rules.  They were nominated by their teachers.  The Leader of the Pack is a staff member who is recognized for their dedication and work with our middle school students.

Team 6's Pride of the Week: Jacoby Sorapuru -
Hard-working, kind, attentive in class and always a pleasure - this student makes choosing Pride of the Week an easy task. After watching most of his classmates step over some trash as they exited the room, without being asked, this young man took the time and care to throw the items away and leave his environment better than he found it. Team 6 is proud to announce Jacoby Sorapuru as their Pride of the Week!

Team 7's Pride of the Week: Ben Aiges -
Super hardworking kid that is HILARIOUS. So friendly to other students and willing to help the teacher whenever. This student was a unanimous selection this week among all teachers. Team 7’S POW is Ben Aiges.

Team 8's Pride of the Week: Eleanor Hoffpauir-
This student is hard-working, and always a pleasure to be around. She collaborates with fellow students, engages in class discussions, and just an overall excellent student.
She shows incredible patience, work ethic, and perseverance. This week’s POW is Eleanor Hoffpauir.

The Leader of the Pack: Mrs. Madeline Landrum
