On behalf of Nikiski North Star Elementary I would like to extend our thanks to Ted Riddall (Nikiski Middle-High School football coach), Dan Carstens (NMHS principal), Shane Bostic (NMHS assistant principal) and the entire Nikiski Middle-High School football team for taking the time to visit Nikiski North Star as part of our quarterly celebration. The assembly was a celebration of Nikiski North Star students demonstrating safety, respect, responsibility and caring and filling up our PBIS pompom jar as a result!
During the assembly Coach Riddall shared the importance of goal setting and perseverance toward achieving that goal. Coach Riddall also shared that his players are proud of the academic award they have received each year. Players talked to our students about the importance of reading and shared a favorite book they had read as an elementary student. Nikiski North Star students were treated to a special cheer from the players and they loved parading through the tunnel the players made. There were high fives abound!
We are so fortunate to have a community with such strong support for our schools.
