P.E. Star of the Month
Physical Education Department has created a new program called
the P.E. Star of the Month. A certificate is presented to one student per
grade level each month who exhibited exceptional behavior, effort,
participation, and sportsmanship. We are excited about our new tradition of
honoring students who work really hard every single time they step foot in the
gym. We are proud of these students and feel they deserve to be recognized.
Here are the
students recognized for the month of February:
3rd Grade: Julia
