Ring­gold El­e­men­tary School is ‘GOLDEN’

The Catoosa County News - - EDITORIALS & OPINION - Staff re­ports

Ring­gold El­e­men­tary School ob­served Red Rib­bon Week dur­ing the week of Oc­to­ber 22-26.

Stu­dents were en­cour­aged to show the RING­GOLD Way, which is the school-wide name for be­hav­ioral ex­pec­ta­tions.

Stu­dents are ex­pected to be GOLDEN in their ac­tions and re­ac­tions through­out the build­ing and among peers and staff mem­bers.

Af­ter week’s of fo­cused in­struc­tion, stu­dents are well aware of the RING­GOLD Way and en­joyed a week of learn­ing how these ex­pec­ta­tions can re­sult in a life­long, healthy life­style filled with pos­i­tive choices — thus the pur­pose of Red Rib­bon Week.

To cul­mi­nate the week of fun dress-up days, stu­dents and staff were en­cour­aged to dress like their fa­vorite hero be­cause “He­roes live the RING­GOLD Way!” Some chose su­per­heroes from comics and tele­vi­sion.

Oth­ers chose real-life he­roes, such as first re­spon­ders, their par­ents, and com­mu­nity lead­ers.

What­ever the choice, RES is blessed with many he­roes at school and through­out the com­mu­nity who model the RING­GOLD Way ev­ery day for our stu­dents

Fourth-grader Madi­son Af­tung chose to dress as her mother, Vic­to­ria Af­tung, be­cause she is her mod­ern-day hero ev­ery day.
