The students practiced appropriate ways to respond and emphasized not saying things like, "I like your story BUT ..."

The staff thanks all students who did a good deed this past week. Those students received fun bucks. The following students were chosen from the group and received books: Shalynda Daigle, McKenzie Willett, Erice Byerly, Timothy Price, Jason Phipps, Vicky Tachick, Austin Cunningham, Charlie Tuck, Lain Cunningham, Juliee-Anna VanVelzor, Amber Nicholson, Teairah Bunch, Michael Alvey, Katherine Van Velzor, Sarah Kingsley and Austin Jackson.
