Indian Lake Elementary School kindergartner Matthew Caudill and third-grader Megan Kimbler recently were presented with bicycles as a reward for being on the perfect attendance list for the grading period of school.
For the first quarter, a total of 105 boys and 107 girls had perfect attendance. Students cannot be tardy or miss one single day to be included in the listing.
Continuing throughout the school year, bicycles will be awarded each nine weeks to a girl and a boy who have attained perfect attendance.
Funding for the bicycles is provided by a student magazine fundraiser that is conducted during the fall. All proceeds from the magazine sales benefits the students in various ways, including the purchase of Laker Zone T-shirts for those students who follow the Laker Zone rules.
Red Ribbon Week celebrated
Indian Lake Elementary recently participated in the district-wide observance of Red Ribbon Week, which helps bring awareness to the importance of making healthy and safe choices.
Throughout the week, students dressed for theme days, including wearing team jerseys to “team up” against drugs and clothes from the 60s, 70s, and 80s to “peace out” to drugs. Friday was “black out drugs” day, where students showed their support by wearing the Indian Lake School colors.
