HARTFORD HIGH SCHOOL “STUDENTS OF THE WEEK”… for May 22 – 26, 2017 are pictured (from the left): 9th Grade – Mackenzie Summerhill, student of Lisa Summerhill & the late Tim Summerhill; 10th Grade – Abby Drane, student of Richard & Meggin Drane; 11th Grade – Robert Ledesma, student of Ro-bert & Misty Ledesma. To become a “Student of the Week,” students are nominated by teachers or staff for doing something positive. For example: getting a good grade on tests or homework, doing well in class participation or just being a kind person to another. Selected students will receive a certificate, their picture taken & posted in the H.S. front lobby showcase for the week and in the Tri-City Record. At the end of the school year, all Students of the Week names will be entered in a drawing for some cool prizes, treats or gift cards. Congratulations to these “Students of the Week” and keep up the great work!
