Chalk Talk – March 1, 2013

Mrs. Searls, principal’s secretary (left) and Mrs. Johnson, principal, General Myer Elementary School, congratulate fourth-grade student Ryan Gonzalez, 9, the 3rd-place winner of the Cochise County Spelling Bee, for
capturing the honor. He won a $50 gift certificate for his win.

General Myer School

Through the General Myer Elementary School Character Counts program, the students have been focusing on the pillars of responsibility and fairness with Mrs. Camps, school counselor. They have learned about the importance of being responsible for duties at home and at school and discussed how critical it is to manage their own behavior and emotional self-control. They have focused on the importance of being held accountable for all they do, as well as being open-minded and accepting of others rather than making decisions or choices that may show favoritism or prejudice.

The school staff and students concluded the 2nd quarter with a Character Counts assembly on Feb. 20, recognizing those who earned awards for Responsibility and Fairness as well as those who made the honor roll.

Special recognition went to Ryan Gonzalez, a fourth grader, who took 3rd place in the Cochise County Spelling Bee. He competed against two eighth graders who earned 1st and 2nd place. During the assembly, he was awarded a $50 gift certificate for Hastings. The school staff and students are proud of his accomplishment!
