During the school’s Morning Express program the fourth-grade glee club sang “From the Inside Out,” which underscored the importance of self-control, April’s Virtue of the Month.

They sang about being an architect of their own life and building their own character.

“Self-control is choosing for yourself the things that you do and the things you are responsible for,” said music teacher Hope Lawton.

After the performance, Principal Jean Ciesla recognized the following students for exhibiting exemplary self-control during the month of April:

Brianna Stoltz, Josalynn Taylor and Zoe Bechtel (kindergarten); Corbin Cross, Gianna Tucker and Matthias Searor (first grade); Riley Niver, Matisyn Brockway, Hunter Aldasch and Emily Barrett (second grade); Allen Mitchell, Ashlyn Bonnell and Chelsey Latocha (third grade); Ian Blaine, Joshua Brown and Aiden Demars (fourth grade); Emily Sohoski, Hailly Bourlier and Aryona DiGregorio (fifth grade); and Alyssa Kurak, Sara Burnett and Teara Smith (sixth grade).
