Selma Elementary proudly celebrated its students who demonstrate exceptional character during the school’s semiannual Character Trait Reception on Friday, Jan. 20.
At the ceremony, students were reminded to work hard, try their best, and to never let anyone underestimate their abilities to do great things by special guest speaker, Nicole Hardy, a sophomore at Smithfield-Selma High.
Students who were recognized were presented with certificates at the ceremony. The Selma Lions Club sponsored a special ice cream social for students who had been nominated between the months of September and January for exhibiting the character traits of respect, perseverance, responsibility, compassion, and dependability.
Students from each grade level are nominated by their teachers each month for displaying that month’s focus character trait.
Selma Elementary administration and staff promote, encourage, and model good character for their students, and say they’re proud to see students exhibit these characteristics each day.
