This week’s student of the week is Joseph Ricasa.  Joseph was nominated by Ms. Pyles because she witnessed someone miss a step and fall on the main stairs. Joseph was the first one to lend a hand to help her up. He offered this person reassuring words because they were embarrassed and hurt. He offered his assistance to walk with her wherever she had to go and remained with us. Joseph is the epitome of what it means to be a Bear. There are countless teachers that can attest to the polite and caring nature of this young man on numerous occasions. Ms. Pyles cannot think a better deserving student to be student of the week. . As this week’s Student of the Week, Joseph will receive a cookie from Ms. Clabaugh and one free admission ticket to an Oakdale High School event.  Way to go Joseph!
