Demon Way

Each day a student will be announced on the morning message as the Demon of the Day. The Demon of the Day is a student whom an adult in the building thinks does a great job of showing and living the Demon Way. For being recognized as Demon of the Day, both the student and nominating teacher, will be in the drawing for a prize package donated by area merchants.
Here are some recent stories of students showing a living the Demon Way:
