In Honor of Mr. Branden’s Birthday, our theme this month will be PASSION! We hope to inspire students and get them thinking about how their PASSION can shine through not only in class but in every day life!

Legacy Awards


The Legacy Award

This is our third year featuring the Legacy Award at the Showcase, where two students (one from Youth and one from Teen/Adult) and one staff member will be awarded. This award is in honor and remembrance of Mr. Branden and we invite everyone to submit their nominations via email or in the ballot box at the front desk. Submissions should state the name of the nominee and why they feel that person is deserving of the nomination. Some criteria for student nominees: Represents SK with pride, integrity, honor and respect. Involved and committed to SK events as well as in class, encouraging, kind and supportive of peers, demonstrates leadership, enthusiasm and respectful. Regardless of skill level or ability, he/she always tries their best and perseveres - giving up is not an option. Considerations for Studio staff submissions include: Charisma, representing the integrity and spirit of Mr. Branden, and how they go above and beyond to make every student experience genuine, special and positive. Cast your vote! We are collecting nominations now through September.
