Respect Lunch

Students eat lunch with community members who discuss the importance of respectful behavior. Each month teachers nominate students to participate. In addition to military personnel, athletes from ISU serve as mentors for our students.

Kid President

Each week students viewed a different video created by Kid President. These inspirational videos are, not only fun to watch, but motivating as well. A favorite video this year is "For the Heroes: A Pep Talk from Kid President."
