On November 22, 2019, sixty Midlothian High School students met in the closed commons for the first RISE breakfast of the school year, recognizing these students for demonstrating RISE qualities during the first nine weeks. During the celebration, Coach Matthew Hutchings gave a speech complimenting the students on their values. At the conclusion of the ceremony, students and their family members enjoyed a congratulatory breakfast of Chick- Fil- A sandwiches, fruit, and donuts.
This school year marks the second year since Midlothian High School adopted the RISE program, which stresses the core values of the RISE acronym: Respectful, Impactful, reSponsible, and courtEous. As a special reward each quarter, Midlo teachers nominate exemplary students who exemplify the RISE qualities.
Many of the students nominated provide true leadership in the Midlothian community. RISE influences students to be the best person they can be, inside and out.
