Congratulations to both students, as well as their teachers.

And thanks to the Weekly for publishing some non-sports stories about our students.

Students are only on the news for doing great at academics or sports. There are no articles for a child who was a great friend to another and who help him/her in the times of need. It is about time to start recognizing children for these good acts of kindness. I bet there are a lot of them in Palo Alto, and around the world. Perhaps if we start something like this bullies would start acting nice.
