HES First Awards Ceremony Honors Students

Haywood Elementary School held the first awards programs of this school year on November 1. Students were recognized for their academic achievements, attendance and strength of Character.

The Rotary Club presented a bicycle to a student who had perfect attendance, and the Brownsville Police Department added a helmet to emphasize the importance of bike safety to our students.

First State Bank representatives were present to tell the students about Kidz Klub.  This is a program to encourage students to realize that academic success pays off in a big way.  For every “A” or “3” on their report cards, $1.00 is deposited into the students’ Kitty Cash account.

Mrs. Jennifer Sloan recognized two students from each grade level who best exhibited the Character trait for this nine weeks – Respectfulness. Each teacher nominated the student who best portrayed this trait in her classroom.

The Family Resource Center holds Happy Hour after each awards program and invites families to come in and check out materials for their students to use at home. Mrs. Susan Evans’ class was rewarded for bringing in the most Box Tops For Education, and several students were added to the “Reading Wall of Fame” for their use of the Resource Center and number of books read during the nine weeks.
