Congratulations to MISS STEPHANIE V., this year’s recipient of the Every Student Succeeding Award. The ESS award is given to one student from each school in the DUSD. Stephanie was selected for this special honor because she is resilient, motivated, positive, kind-hearted, committed to academic excellence, and a joy to be around.
As your Honors English teacher, I want to say that it is my pleasure to know you and have you for a student!
On behalf of all your teachers, your counselor, Mrs. Israel, and the SMS Administration, I would like to say THANK YOU, STEPHANIE, FOR BEING WONDERFUL YOU!
