It was our pleasure last week to take time to recognize students who have excelled in their academic pursuits. As a school we value all the gifts that our students bring to the community from sports skills, leadership, musical talents and charitable works but the core work of a school is the learning that happens inside our classrooms. The students we recognized last week are the students who take that learning and study hard to make connections across subjects and deepen their learning. Congratulations to all of those recieving International Baccalaureate Diploma awards, Greyhound Hounors (95% or higher average), and Most Valuable Hounds (awarded to students with a good work ethic, show initiative, are engaged in learning, have a positive attitude and are helpful to their peers).
