Effort lauded at Fairgrieve Elementary School


Fairgrieve Elementary students who demonstrated mush effort throughout the month of May were recently awarded the school’s Virtue of the Month award.
 
The recognition came during a Morning Express program where the students were praised by Principal Jean Sampsell for their determined attempts to succeed academically and behaviorally.
 
“Certainly we want to see that through the last day of school,” she told the entire student body.
 
For their efforts, award recipients received a “brag tag” to add to their collection, followed by thunderous applause from guests, teachers and classmates. All assembly attendees were treated to the school’s Fourth Grade Glee Club performance of “I Was Here” about people taking a lot of time and effort to do something that makes a difference.
