A Zizzer is someone of the highest caliber and who pursues excellence. They are people that are experts at anything they do. Someone who tries their best and never gives up. A leader, winner and good person is definitely a good representative of a Zizzer. Zizzers are winners and good sports. It takes helpfulness, and encouragement to be a Zizzer. You must have pride and confidence in yourself, but still be a good sport. Our football players are examples of good sports because when they don’t win a game they are still cheerful and congratulate the other team, even they are disappointed. But, when they do win, they are never rude to the other team. Zizzers must try their best both athletically and academically by working hard and being dedicated but also having fun. We represent our school even off campus.
Being a Zizzer shows through in our positive attitudes and when we show that we care for one another. Zizzers are always kind, helpful and respectful to each other and their selves. When working toward success Zizzers never give up. When giving it our all we get great grades by trying our best. Even off campus it shows that we are Zizzers.
I personally am very proud to be a Zizzer. The teachers and students are great and very supporting of each other. Being a Zizzer is great! It teaches you many life lessons such as how to enjoy working hard. I think that all Elementary, Middle and High School students are very lucky to be Zizzers and they enjoy it a lot.
