WILMINGTON — Students at Denver Place Elementary were not only busy celebrating the winter holidays during the month of December, they were also celebrating respect, responsibility and safety at school.
Students put forth extra effort throughout the month to be respectful of one another and of their school, to be responsible in their studies and their actions, and to make choices that would assure school safety.
It is no secret that when December rolls around school children across the country are on good behavior, but because students at Denver Place Elementary School believe it’s important to be kinder than necessary, teachers and administrators could not help but noticed students making an effort to be extra good by applying these new behavior goals.
Not wanting student’s efforts to go unnoticed and unrewarded, a group of very special people visited students the Friday afternoon before winter break began to extend best wishes for a happy holiday. No, it wasn’t Santa and his elves, but the members of Wilmington College women’s basketball team who spent the afternoon helping students get crafty by making candy cane reindeer.
The Denver Place workshop was a flurry of activity as good boys and girls delighted in their reward for good behavior.
