Jefferson students recognized during Character Counts assembly

Jefferson Elementary School held its Character Counts assembly on April 17. Awards were presented to two students from each first- and second-grade classroom. One of the six pillars of success is trustworthiness and the students chosen need to demonstrate honesty, integrity, promise-keeping and loyalty. The students received Character Counts certificates and necklaces. Pictured (front row, from left) are Lyllah Mendez, Jena Petersen, Isaac Aley, Harper Sayler, Will Lyon, Nashten Funderberg and Kendall Keutzer; (second row) Tucker Schafer, Westyn Widmer, Keegan Ramsey, Madison Shaw, Elijah Lasson, Hawk Amy and Bentley Wolf; and (back row) Griffin Breeding-Fulton, Carleigh Mack, Uli Schneider and Kodi Stopka. Absent from the photo is Kinzley Hansen.
