On Valentine's Day the Diller-Odell Elementary Staff sported their "I Love Public Schools" t-shirts. They posed for a group picture in front of the children's anti-bullying hands February bulletin board display.
At the beginning of each school year, all of our students PreK through 6th grade, trace their hands on purple paper and sign their name on it as a token of their pledge. These hands are displayed in the hallways throughout the year as a visual reminder. Every morning this anti-bullying pledge is recited in each classroom, "I will not use my hands or my words for hurting myself or others." IT'S THE GRIFFIN WAY!
I love school! You love school! We all love public schools!
Three Griffin athletes have signed letters of intent to play collegiate athletics. Madison Jurgens has signed to play volleyball at the University of South Dakota. Paige Vitosh is going to play volleyball at Eastern Wyoming College. Tayler Wendland has committed to SCC to play softball. Good luck, ladies!
