As Wish Week wrapped up at the second assembly, we took to the time to go over all that had happened over the week.
Congrats to the ladies for having the most spirit points and winning the famous Spirit Bear. At the beginning of the assembly, according to Tina Stroman, boys got 2,385 spirit points while girls got 2,376, beating them by only nine points. However, girls won more points in the assembly, beating the boys and resuming their winning streak.
At the assembly, students got crazy as they found out how much they raised for our wish kid, Becca Tusca. In total, we had raised almost $53,000 and were able to grant her wish and possibly a few others. Teachers, students, and athletes came out to give speeches and perform dances in honor of Becca. Sports wrestling, girls swim and dive, girls and guys basketball, and unified all came out to show off their dance moves with several teachers and Becca as the judges.
Anatomy teacher Nick Miles gave a heart warming presentation during the assembly.
“[She is] an amazing young woman who I have had the pleasure of knowing. Legend’s heart beats for you Becca,” Miles said.
