Southdown Primary School’s students, faculty and staff gathered in the gym one recent day for a Splash Award assembly.
Teacher Pamela Schwarting led the full-school assembly. “Mrs. Schwarting spoke of the importance of listening during announcements so students do not miss their bus,” Southdown Principal Scott Oshrin said. “The student council representatives modeled appropriate classroom behavior during this time.”
Southdown also honored its Stars of the Month with Splash Awards, which is only fitting since the school’s mascot is a dolphin. The youngsters were recognized for their overall effort and performance in classrooms and all around the building and grounds
