    Four Grade 7 students accompanied Principal Hanson to the National Junior Honor Society’s (NJHS) State Summit in San Diego.

    Principal Annette says, “The kids were amazing, and they learned a lot. I hope they take their new knowledge and use it to become change-makers.” The 7th-graders interacted with many other students and academic presenters, but also found time to visit the San Diego Zoo and the beach.
