    These are our students that are nominated by our teachers and staff.  The guidelines were to pick those students that are academically sound, those that help peers, those that are model students or have done something extraordinary to help out a fellow student or do something to keep the school safe and clean.  Students pictures will be featured on our Web page and also on a bulletin board in front of the school.
