Today we recognized our Term 1 Super Knights at an assembly. Read what a few of their teachers have to say about these amazing students.

8th Grade Super Knights

Samantha Mendonca:  

"There are few people I have met that are as kind and compassionate as Samantha. She tries really hard to do her absolute best in both her academics and her friendships."

"Samantha is a ray of sunshine in our school! It is obvious how much she wants to learn and do her best. She is so fun and I love talking to her."
