This month’s character trait at Volney Elementary School was self control and students, staff, and family members gathered together during a School Spirit Assembly to recognize those among them who showed the most self control. Principal Jeff Hendrickson presented Self Control Role Model certificates to the following students during at this month’s assembly: Rhyle Humphrey, Leah Rowlee, Addison Pickard, Arik Hartnett, Kaydin Dunsmore, Shane Goutermout, Mason Firenze, Ella Henderson, Brenna Wells, Samantha McRae, Brittany Baum, Patricia Milner, Autumn Kennedy, Luvlee Croci, Samantha Jodway, Jadelynn Clark, Trevor Schleicher, Devon Boyce, Savannah LaPage, Kyle Rowland, James Freeman, Tanner Trovato, Austin Poirer and Sabrina Furgal. Selected by their teachers, these students consistently demonstrated the importance of self control.
Also honored at the assembly were those who are working hard to do their very best in school academically and socially. The following students were presented with On-A-Roll Awards: Kelly Hayden, Emilée Vant, Zachary Ranieri, Devon Searor, Madison Palmer, Alexis Ingersoll, Seth Godfrey, Landen Howard, Logan Wilson, Haili Gist, Kevin VanBuren, Richard Murtagh, Lyle Beeman, Anthony Morrison, Alex Ball, Dustyn Arroway, William Stone, Olivia Abrams, Mason Rowlee, Caitlyn McAfee, My’kell Kaigler, Joshua Pecoy, Austin Vashaw and Zachary Pepper.
Character trait education and recognizing students for acting appropriately is part of the Fulton City School District’s PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports) initiative and helps to promote a positive school and learning environment.
In addition to all the awards Principal Hendrickson presented, those in attendance were also treated to a reading of the Robert Munsch book “The Paper Bag Princess” by nine first grade students. Ryan Nichols, Durbin Dygert, Hanna Miller, Joann LeVea, Sarah Wells, Mary Jerred, Logan McDougall, Paige Kingsley and Alexis Ingersoll all took turns at the microphones reading lines from the entertaining story. Librarian Sarah Fay coordinated the event as part of the Reader’s Theater, which is an annual event at Volney Elementary School. Fay commented on what a fantastic job all the readers did, and how proud she was of their performance.
