Student Recognition

The Board recognized students from each of our schools with Student Ignite Awards for their academic, social-emotional, and extra curricular achievements.  Many families were in attendance to support their children and hear the accolades from the staff who nominated their students.  The district is grateful to partner with our supportive parents/guardians and amazing staff to encourage growth and learning in our classrooms!  Congratulations to all of the students who earned awards!
