Roaring with Good Character

As part of the character education program at Thomas J. Lahey Elementary School, students that “roared” with Lahey Lion PRIDE were selected to participate in the first VIP luncheon on Dec. 10.     

During a school-wide assembly, students learned about the importance of displaying PRIDE, an acronym for patience, respect, integrity, dependability and empathy. Students caught performing positive character actions had the opportunity to receive a ticket from a faculty or staff member as well as have their name read on the morning announcements. Through a lottery system, students were selected to take part in the VIP luncheon.

During the luncheon, students had the privilege of sitting at a specially decorated table, received a snack of their choice from the cafeteria and were accompanied by a mystery guest.
