    We would like to recognize a Special Act of Kindness, displayed by the Boys modified Basketball Team last night.  Although they did not win, their 5th quarter actions epitomized a level of kindness so profound, both coaches and parents were beaming with pride. In the final moments of the quarter, a student from the other team who had not had much court time all season, was given multiple opportunities to score.  His teammates were feeding him the ball for every play and rebound. They seemed very determined for him to score.  Seeing what was happening, our amazing middle school players began to back off on defense so that this student could have more chances to shoot.  As he finally scored, both teams joined in jubilant cheer for this student!
