Show your Topper spirit

-A A +A
By Bernadette Lauritzen

This week, we salute the Bonding to School asset, number 24.
I like to connect the community in the spirit of homecoming, during this week.
I did not grow up here, I did not attend the schools here, but I feel connected to them because of my children.
When I am at Chamisa Elementary, I am, indeed, a Cheetah. Although I do not currently have students in the middle school, I do a great deal of work with students and staff and when there, I feel like a Hawk. Finally I feel like a ’Topper and proudly wear my #16 jersey and soon, a delighful T-shirt, representing the NJROTC unit.
This week, we can all feel like ’Toppers as we view their spirit days from afar, take part in the LAYL bonfire, watch the parade or attend or listen to the football game.
This week, we can all take pride in the accomplishments of students, whether they are in the ’Topper band, part of the unit of Navy Color Guard or the elementary-age students that will sell cotton candy during the football game to raise money for physical education programs. Go Mr. Black!
This past week, we also celebrated the honor of receiving the award for one of the 100 BEST Communities for Young people from America’s Promise and ING.
