Twelve Slack Students Receive Bikes

Hard work must pay off, because 12 Slack Elementary students have received bikes.

From the first day of school until now, the students, ranging from kindergarten to fifth grade, have not missed a single day of school. All of the students' names who had perfect attendance were put into a drawing.

Academy in Lufkin donated the bikes to show their support to the community and how proud they are of the kids.

The principal says this is just a way to show the kids that hard work pays off and, if they are in school, they're learning.
