Twelve Students Get Bikes for Perfect Attendance

by Ramonica R. Jones

A group of students at Slack elementary celebrated Christmas early. A boy and girl from each grade level got a brand new shiny bicycle as a reward for having perfect attendance all year.

Academy donated bikes and helmets for the 12 lucky students. Teachers at Slack say they enjoy recognizing students for their hard work.

Associate principal Sally Davis says, "We emphasize with them that the learning can only take place if they're here with us, and especially being close to their teacher in the classroom."

The staff at Slack elementary has more bike giveaways planned next semester.
