For the assignment, students were encouraged to acknowledge others who helped them recognize their strengths. 

“We felt that students needed an opportunity to be able to write about a time when somebody did something positive for them and really take a look at those people who create a positive school environment and look for the best themselves and others to encourage all students to look for the best in themselves and all others,” BHHS PBIS coordinator Michelle Prudden said.
