We are excited to announce that Independence Local School's Sixth Grade Student Mia Bonfili is the district's first #IPrideStar Star of the Week!
Her nomination reads . . .

This morning when I came to work, Mia was writing and putting post-it notes on EVERY sixth grade locker. Each note had a positive quote or saying. Each student was greeted by a mysterious note this morning saying things like, "You're awesome," or "Smile and have a great day." I think this is a phenomenal demonstration of character and how one person has the capability of changing the world one small deed at a time. Students didn't know where the notes came from, but they were so happy to get them!

Congratulations, Mia, for being selected as Independence Local School's IPride Star of the Week!
