√ Positive Behavior & Celebrations: Congratulations to our class of 2022! We celebrated some of our seniors this past week at the Senior Honors Breakfast where we honored those who earned Hawk Medallions, the Seal of Biliteracy, Honors and Advanced Diplomas, and Step2theU credentials. The Senior Dinner Dance at the Loveland Aquarium last Friday was also a fantastic way to celebrate our seniors and the festivities that await this week with graduation. We will miss our seniors and cannot wait to see what the next chapter of their lives will bring!
