The Good News Call this week goes out to three AWESOME 5th graders. Tyce VanderPol, Easton Schuman, and Kori VanderWerff have done an excellent job of modeling our word of the week; Gratitude. These three table washers went above and beyond with their table washing duties. Each day, they washed their tables, and came over to personally thank Mrs. Knecht for assisting them. They noticed that the little kids were having trouble getting their tables washed, so they grabbed a wash rag and started helping the little kids wash tables too.
We have awesome days at school because of great kiddos like these three who see what needs to be done; they don't ask questions or complain; they just grab a wash rag and help out. Thank you for modeling Gratitude by being thankful and for saying Thank You. Thank you for seeing where we needed help, and for going above and beyond your duties to help our lunchroom run smoothly. And thank you for being great kiddos!
