Sparty Shout Out Recognition!!!

We love seeing all the positive behaviors happening in our building and want to highlight these each week! Every Friday, one 5th grader and one 6th grade will be recognized on the morning announcements, but all of our students who receive a Sparty Shout Out during the week will be published in our 5/6 weekly newsletter that Friday. These students demonstrate the Spartan Way and have been acknowledged for their efforts by a staff member or guest teacher.
