Demon of the Day:


Today’s Demons of the Day are Gavin Mestas and Travis Neidlinger. Gavin and Travis were nominated for demonstrating their caring attitude by Mrs. Kopack. Mrs. Kopack noticed that when a fellow classmate’s car hit a slick spot and ran into a curb making it unable to drive, Gavin and Tyler jumped into action. Gavin was ready to help tow the car with his truck and Tyler had the necessary knowledge and safety equipment to keep everyone safe and get the job done. They were selfless in helping their peer during the cold and wet morning rush to school. Their actions are a great reminder to offer help during others’ times of need. Way to go guys.
