Curiosity and Wonder 

This week, we recognized students for academic achievement, as each teacher got to name one student as an exemplar of what we call "academic character". These students are not necessarily the ones with the highest averages; they are those who have shown certain traits that we find admirable in scholars. In the past, I have given this recognition to a student who has shown resilience, who has seen academic struggle or even failure as a chance to learn. Other times, I have recognized students for creativity, responsibility, or enthusiasm. This quarter, however, I recognized a young woman, Haley Elliott, for her curiosity and wonder. Haley always asks probing questions, always continues her reflections long after class is over, and is sometimes so blown away by what she discovers that she can't wait to share her experiences. Haley approaches learning with curiosity and wonder.

Mr. Hudson partnered with our CTE program to provide this all-terrain utility vehicle for use at the Field Campus.
