    The Middle School held another Go Red Assembly to celebrate students who exhibit outstanding characteristics of our PBIS program Go Red. Go Red stands for - Goals, Opportunities, Respect, Excellence, and Dedication.  Our theme this year is "Keep your eye on the target". Teachers and students participated in a human shuffle board activity where teachers pushed students on a scooter and tried to get closest to the target. Those that successful entered the circle received two points, and if they touched the line they got one point. Class dojo points will be reset starting on Monday February 22. So earn those points and keep up the good work!
