The Los Alamos Middle School Hawks had spirits soaring as they participated in, A Minute to Win It, with Assets In Action, just prior to spring break.
The LAMS Student Council, under the direction of teacher, Linda Bennett, sold tickets, staffed activities and motivated the troops.
“Thanks to the efforts of the Student Council and Assets In Action, all I had to do was say that Minute to Win It was going to happen and secure a date and time,” Principal Rex Kilburn said, “Student Council did a fabulous job coordinating, Ms. Bennett should be very pleased with the work she has done with her Student Council students.”
The idea, based on the NBC television summer hit, with host Guy Fieri was used to support the staff recognition event known as the Hawk Hubba Bubba Award.
“The fact that the funds raised go back into an account to celebrate staff underscores and emphasizes the great kids that attend the middle school,” Kilburn said, “All of the adults that work at the middle school are lucky to work with such individuals.”
The Kilburn crew rose to the challenge when students purchased tickets for 25 cents, for self or staff, to earn a chance to play.
