Pembroke Has Integrity!
Each week we hope to give examples of students exhibiting the PRIDE character focus for the month. As a reminder, January's focus is integrity. This week Mrs. Perkins's class was spotted showing integrity.
While returning from lunch, Mrs. Perkins’ 5th grade class showed integrity by walking quietly in a line, without interrupting other classrooms. They did this without Mrs. Perkins being in the front of the line.
Great job, 5th graders! We are looking forward to hearing about and seeing more examples of students demonstrating integrity!
