Throughout the school year, Lee Road Elementary School students focused on the importance of teamwork and being an upstander through engaging classroom lessons, activities and assembly programs. To end the school year on a high note, the students recently gathered in the school gymnasium for their end of the year celebration of their Get-A-Voice Character Education Program.
Students watched a Get-A-Voice video which was a montage created by student submissions. With the help of the school's Get-A-Voice committee, many students participated in the video which showcased teamwork and acts of kindness through skits, songs and poems.
Principal Anthony Goss recognized students who were honored throughout the school year for demonstrating outstanding acts of kindness, teamwork or citizenship. Students stood to be praised once again in front of their peers as Goss reminded all the students to use their voice to stand up to those who speak negatively about others.
"It is our hope that you will continue to use your words and use your voice not just in school but at home and during the summer, wherever you are," he said. "We would like to hear about what you did in the summer when we come back to school in the fall."
To conclude the ceremony, students sang their Get-A-Voice theme song for the school year, "Just Be You."
