🙌 Student Shout Outs

End of 9 Weeks Reading Party

At the end of each 9 weeks, four students from each class in grades 1st through 4th are chosen by their teacher to participate in a reading party in the library. These students have all shown dedication and commitment to reading by completing their reading logs and AR tests.

Victorious Vikings

Each month, our students focus on a specific character trait with our School Counselor, Miss Corriher. The character trait for February was Respect, and the character trait for March was Forgiveness. One student from each class was chosen by their teacher because they showed behaviors of these character traits.
