Elmira students and staff gathered to celebrate at the Cool in School assembly on Friday, November 8th. This assembly honors students who have perfect or near perfect attendance during the first academic quarter. Guest speaker, Rick Dancer talked with students about the importance of coming to school every day and being on time. He also shared a story that highlighted the importance of following your own dreams and not allowing others to judge you for what they may see as differences. He challenged kids to find another student that they may not know very well and have lunch with them. He also encouraged them to share what they had learned at the assembly with their families.
Congratulations to the winners of the gold and silver hat attendance drawings! Students with zero absences or tardies for the quarter had their names entered into the gold hat while students with 3 or fewer absences and tardies had names in the silver hat. Prizes ranged from a single pass to Splash to a family pass for miniature golf at Putters.
