Zack Garza - a 7th grade student at Hickman Charter School - was honored today at the eighth annual Every Student Succeeding Awards Breakfast. Zack is one of 23 students from 15 school districts in Stanislaus County selected for this honor. Congratulations to Zack and his team of supporters!
Pat Golding, retired Hickman Superintendent and founder of the Hickman Charter School, was honored on Tuesday by the California Charter Schools Association with a Legacy Award. Pat has been influential state-wide in the charter school movement and is very deserving of this prestigious honor.
Today the student body played Change Wars. The activity was organized by the student council and the Stand Up 2 Cancer Club. Money raised will go towards the fight against cancer. There were 6 tables set up on the basketball courts (1 for each class) on which were 3 boxes varying in size. The largest box was worth 50 spirit points, the medium 75 and the smallest 100. The students attempted to toss whatever change they bring into the boxes they chose.
Mrs. Dompeling's 7th grade classes traveled to Knight's Ferry today to release the salmon that they raised over the past several weeks. In addition to the release, students visited the visitor's center, did scratch art, and took a guided nature walk.
