Way to go, Wildcats!
Our middle school Social Studies teacher, Mrs. Casey Raybourne, recently was trained to begin using a new character education program in our middle school called the Medal of Honor. Using this program, Mrs. Raybourne studies actual Medal of Honor recipients with her students to discuss various attributes and virtues of someone who has been recognized with this important distinction. This quarter’s virtue was INTEGRITY, and students were nominated by their peers for displaying courage in our school during the second grading period.
This quarter’s recipient of the SJV Medal of Honor for Courage is sixth grader Christian Kernell. His fellow students nominated him for “being honest, even when it wasn’t easy,” and for “owning up and admitting he did something wrong, along with facing the consequences”. Congratulations, Christian, for earning the award for Integrity in our SJV Medal of Honor program.
Congratulations to SJV first grader, Bailey Klingen, for winning this quarter’s Wheels in Motion bicycle from the Gallatin Rotary Club. Many thanks to Mr. Kemp from the Gallatin Rotary and Officer Messler from the Gallatin Police Department for joining us for today’s presentation.
The SJV Student Council encouraged students to bring in boxes of pasta to support the Ladies of Charity Christmas Basket program, which provides 800 food boxes to needy families in the Nashville area. The goal was 100 boxes, but the generous spirit of SJV families prevailed and 224 boxes were collected. Students who participated also got to wear crazy socks to school yesterday as a reward. Way to go, Wildcats!
Our Student Government represented SJV today at the Ronald McDonald Pull-Tab celebration! We took all of the tabs that the school raised and turned them in to help raise money for the Ronald McDonald House. We also visited the Parthenon, and had an ice cream treat at McDonalds! Thank you very much to our chaperones Mrs. Cox and Mrs. Scovel!
