Second and third grade students at Central Elementary enjoyed their Liberty Learning graduation ceremony and honored their picks for Super Citizens. In the fall Liberty Legacy came to Central Elementary to provide a character education program that teaches elementary students what it means to be a good citizen. Since the fall visit teachers have been working on character education and citizenship lessons with their students, and now they were ready to graduate from the program.
As part of the closing ceremonies of the program the students recite the pledge, sing songs with motions, and each grade presented an award, called the Torch Team Hero, to a Super Citizen.
The second grade presented their Torch Team Hero award to PTO President Maressa Ware in recognition of all the volunteer work she does at both the Central Elementary and Central High School campuses; almost every day you can find Mrs. Ware at the school volunteering and lending a hand and support to our students and staff. Pictured are Sadie Ware and Elisha Burton presenting Mrs. Ware with her award.
The third graders were torn on who to present their Torch Team Hero awards to, so they picked both the lunchroom staff and the bus drivers in recognition of greeting the students with smiling faces and warm words each day while transporting them safely and filling their bellies. Pictured is Kim Conn accepting the award on behalf of the bus drivers and Debra Hawthorne accepting the award on behalf of the lunchroom workers.
