Liam is our "caught card" winner for this week. Liam was caught being awesome by Mrs. Winkle. Liam jumped right in to help when a friend's yo-yo fell apart. The classmate was getting very frustrated and Liam was able to fix the yo-yo and help his friend calm down. Liam won a free blizzard from Dairy Queen. We would like to give a shout-out to Dairy Queen for donating several different gift cards to the school for our "caught card" initiative. Thanks so much for helping us celebrate our students! Thanks for being awesome, Liam! We are proud of you!

Here are this week's PRIDE Award winners! Great work Warriors!
This year we have made some exciting changes and additions to our P.R.I.D.E program. One of those additions was created as way to celebrate all the great things our students are doing. This year all of the staff will be carrying around cards that they will hand out to students when they are "Caught Being Awesome". At the end of each week we will draw a card and that student will receive a prize that has been provided by some of our business and community partners. We are so appreciative of the support we have received while starting this initiative. We look forward to creating more connections with the community and celebrating our amazing students! Stay tuned for more information on some of the other changes this year and highlights on our community partners.
