Meet This Week's Spartan Scholar of the Week!

For the Week of 11.16.2015: This weeks’ Spartan Scholar of the Week is Denise Muniz, a 12th grader in our School of Business, Technology and Design. Denise was nominated by Ms. Lamm. Denise takes pride on being a Spartan. During lunch time, she takes it upon herself to walk around and encourage other students to pick up their trash and keep the school clean. Denise is a conscientious and mindful student, and more of us should follow her lead. Congratulations, Denise!
