Nearly 225 students earned recognition for their attendance and academic success to start the school year.

To honor their accomplishments, teachers and administrators hosted a breakfast in the morning for seventh and eighth graders, and an ice cream social in the afternoon for fifth and sixth grade students.

“Being here takes effort on your part. You’re here because of you,” Principal Shawn Morgan told the honorees. “We’re proud of our students. We’re proud of our school and you’re the reasons why.”
