On Task



The second nine weeks has ended and we enjoyed celebrating with students for their SOARing behavior. All classes earned 10 crickets for the nine weeks and were allowed to bring a Furry Friend with them to school.

We were also excited to share an extra surprise for the classes earning the most tickets for each grade level. These classes won a superhero bracelet along with a special cricket to display in the hallway. Mrs. Callaham's class earned the bronze cricket, Mrs. Thomas' class earned the silver cricket, and Mrs. Kellett's class earned the golden cricket for earning the most tickets in the school!

Congratulations to all of our students for displaying SOARing behavior throughout the second nine weeks!
