Students at Washington Drive Primary School learned the importance of kindness and respect at the school’s Character Counts assembly on Oct. 3.

Assistant Principal Kerry Neira led the kindergarten, first and second grade classes through a presentation, reminding them to extend kindness and respect to the entire school community, including not just teachers but also parents, security guards, custodians, nurses and others.

Ms. Neira also reminded them of proper bus and cafeteria behavior, which includes sitting down, wearing a seatbelt and keeping their hands to themselves. Students who behave well on the bus or in the cafeteria will be celebrated and named either a bus or lunch room superstar. Their photos will be hung on the wall in recognition of their hard work!
