In order to acknowledge Midlo students on their ability to exceptionally demonstrate the RISE qualities (Respectful, Impactful, Respectul, Courteous), Midlo held the third celebration of RISE Up. The ceremony took place in the auditorium on Friday, May 3, 2019, during Midlo Morning. Parents and family gathered in the open commons and auditorium, to witness students receive awards on their excellent behavior and accomplishments throughout the year.

Speakers Dr. Robert Gifford and Dr. Denise Bowes presented thoughtful speeches of appreciation for students who work hard to advance their high school career and behave to the best of their ability. Gifford thanked all parents for coming and celebrating students, while explaining that “[RISE award winners] exemplify positive behavior and values through their parents example.” Teachers nominated a total of 95 students for a RISE award, selecting students whom they believe exhibit constant effort and strive for greatness in their class and extracurricular activities.

Mrs. Underwood’s students graciously distributed programs at the entrance and served celebratory breakfast items after the ceremony. As the ceremony concluded, Bowes  added, “Many of you have been recognized for the first time, and I hope that you take the spirit of today and remember it for being recognized by continuing to do good things and possibly be nominated again next year.”

Congratulations to all of the following students for doing their best every day in school and showing their teachers and staff that they rise above school expectations. Congratulations to:
