Emcee: Somos DPS!
Crowd: Somos DPS!
“I’m Amanda Stewart, and I’m the principal of Lake Middle School. We’re really trying to define what it means to be a Lake Knight…”
Emcee: “I’m so proud of you guys.”
“…so that we have Lake pride in our students and in the community.”
Stewart: “We have weekly assemblies, and we’re really trying to build a community with our values of honor, hard work, genorsity and humility.”
Emcee: “Sixth grade champion. Give it up for Nigel! Come on up, brotha.”
Stewart: “So in the assemblies we’re able to honor students who are showing those values.”
Emcee: “Aaliah Mills! Courage to lead!”
Stewart: “We’ve seen students just really start to take ownership of the values.”
Emcee: “And that’s what we’re going to continue to do.”
Stewart: “They’re honoring them for others, they’re like a leader in the school by showing the values. They’re able to step up and model those values without being asked. And that’s really what we’re looking for here.”
Students: ¡Somos DPS, vamos! (Cheers)
Stewart: ¡Somos DPS!
Crowd: ¡Somos DPS! Lake? Knights!
