At Handy we believe in growing and nurturing the whole child. Part of that comes through character education. We do this by focusing on the six pillars of character - Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring and Citizenship (TRRFCC). Students are recognized and celebrated daily and weekly for demonstrating these pillars of character.
The 2nd annual Pajama Game was a huge success! The 8th gr Boys' Basketball team collected over 2,000 personal care items for the Bay Area Women's Shelter.
Wildcats from Mrs. Richard's classes hosted Olympic gold medal bobsledder Steve Mesler. Thanks for the visit and great words of encouragement!
