Haller Achievers

Recognizing Achievers at Haller (RAH for short) is a program that has a long history at the middle school level and which Haller Middle School carried over from Post Middle School. Students are nominated by their teachers and other staff members to recognize character strengths that help promote a successful school climate, such as leadership, citizenship, sportsmanship, organization skills, creativity in writing and the arts and musical abilities. Students are nominated only once during the school year in order to recognize as many deserving students as possible.
Haller PTSA invited 100s of students, and their families, to receive a special certificate in honor of their nomination, to enjoy a 7 a.m. continental breakfast and entertainment that featured either the schools Rhythm Thrashers jazz band or the Keynotes jazz choir.
On behalf of Haller Middle School PTSA, I would like to thank the following families and businesses who graciously sponsored the five bi-monthly RAH events during this past school year by donating toward the costs for food, mailing and paper supplies.
Mr. and Mrs. Jack and Eyleen Shouman (two-time sponsors); Stillaguamish Athletic Club; Aeronautical Test Services; and Mr. and Mrs. Rich Larson. Thank you all very much for helping to make Hallers first school year a success.
Wendy McClure, RAH Chair
Arlington
