WES celebrates October Kids of Character

Almost 70 elementary students were nominated by their teachers as Kids of Character for the month of October. The students from kindergarten through grade 5 were recognized for consistently demonstrating the word of the month – responsibility.

The Kids of Character students were met with applause, high-fives and cheers from their friends, teachers, principals and staff as they paraded through the hallways at Watervliet Elementary School after receiving their special certificates and coupons for an ice-cream treat.
