The Beaufort County School District Character Education program began in September and Coosa Elementary has some shining examples to share. The focus for the month of September was “acceptance”. Coosa’s first winner to be named Student of the Month is Alanna O’Quinn from Mrs. Landa’s kindergarten class. Mrs. Landa said, “Alanna is always concerned with the welfare of others. She is always looking for a way to help her teachers and her friends. On the playground, Alanna finds students who might need a friend to play with and asks them to join her. In the classroom, she always makes sure the students around her understand what they are supposed to be doing and if she finishes early, she always asks her friends if they need help.” The other students in the group picture who were nominated are:

Joseph Fries – 3rd grade
Clayton Chambers – PreK
Nahu Ruiz – 3rd grade
Bryce Young – 1st grade
Gabe Holcombe – Kindergarten
Emmanuel Ruiz Mendoza – 1st grade
Tyson Adkins – 5th grade
Kalise Chapman – 4th grade
Sofia Clark – 2nd grade
Regan Perkins – 4th grade

Thank you students for being such awesome leaders at Coosa Elementary!
