To nominate, please use the folder with nomination/voting forms which will be placed on the sign-in tables in both buildings during the last week of every month. Reasons for nomination can be stated on these forms. Vote by initialing in the column near your choice. The advisors make the actual selections.
2. Assistant principals/ members of administration/ advisory of the nominees should be consulted by class advisors to make sure that the students are respectful of school policies and regulations.
