We will be spotlighting a Student of the Week from each classroom. These students receive a certificate and prize from Mrs. Peery with the chance to be drawn out at the end of each month for a special activity with the Principal. The focus for the month of December is "Honesty".  The students are selected by their teachers as they see their students show honesty here at school.  Here are the Students of the Week for December 11.
