Mrs. Carver and Pedro receive the Sledgehammer Award

On the last day of school before Winter Break, students and staff at Attales Middle School gathered for a Family Meeting where two people received the school's Sledgehammer Award.

Sixth-grade student Pedro G. and school guidance counselor Mrs. Carver were both the recipients of the Sledgehammer.

Pedro was presented the award from Ms. Hess, who described Pedro as kind-hearted with a positive attitude.

Mrs. Carver received the Sledgehammer from sixth-grader Dior M.

"This person, I feel I have a strong bond with. I love this person because she never rushes me and she is always patient with me and others," Dior said. "She makes a lot of differences." 

The meeting on Dec. 23, 2022, led by Principal Burns, was a chance to look back at the year so far, and ahead at what is to come in 2023. 

"There's a lot of good stuff that we accomplished and there's going to be a lot more that's going to come between January and June," Burns told the students before presenting a slideshow of photos and events from the first four months of school.

During the meeting, teachers took turns acknowledging the Students of the Marking Period for MP 1 from each grade level.

Media Production students J.J. S., Leila R., Isabella A., Jordyn H. and Luna T. also presented a video of "Shoutouts" they created featuring students and some teachers. 

The meeting concluded with a speech by eighth-grader Jadyn C. encouraging her peers to make a New Year's resolution.

"Try your best and work hard," she told the students.

Burns added, "Know that when you walk into that front door, there are people who care about you and there are people who love you right here in this Attales family."
