Positive Shout Outs

Congratulations to the following students that demonstrated PRIDE behavior and earned positive shout-outs from their teacher. These students are leaders in their classrooms and are modeling kindness for their peers. Some words that the teachers used to describe these students were: helpful, kind, hard-working, positive, encouraging, and always nice to others. We are so proud of these students! Keep being you!
