On March 29 Rancho Milpitas Middle School held a GolDON breakfast, an event that gave members of the school community the chance to recognize students outside of the traditional areas of academics, test scores, and athleticism.
Each Rancho staff member was allowed to invite one student to be their honorary guest, and get the chance to know them a little bit better outside the traditional classroom setting. They gave the student a personalized certificate at the breakfast.
"The GolDON Breakfast was started two years ago at Rancho as a way to recognize and celebrate students in a very significant and personalized way," said Rancho Principal Casey McMurray. "ASB Adviser Amrun Singh, ASB students, our custodian, Jr., Kumi, and I work together to set up the tables/chairs/decorations/music/food/certificates and other important details to make this event special for all who are present."
After everyone had breakfast during the event, staff members had the opportunity to briefly share why they invited their student to the breakfast.
"It is so inspiring to hear the stories and see the smiles!" McMurray said. " It is an event that we all look forward to each year."
