Pirate Pride Award
The Pirate Pride award recognizes students who get "caught doing something good." A student may be nominated who has demonstrated a behavior that goes above and beyond the ordinary in terms of kindness, civility, or citizenship. 

The Pirate Pride winner for the week of October 27th is freshman Isabel Fox!  Mrs. Lisa Borgia, Isabel's Physical Science teacher, had nominated her saying, "Isabel stepped in to help my  substitute. I had left behind a Notebook file with notes and video clips for students to use to prepare for a test the following day.  The sub had some difficulties so Isabel 'saved the day' by assuming the teacher's role. I am grateful for her help!"  We are proud of Isabel for her sense of kindness and responsibility.
