Brinley Jeffers, a kindergarten student at Desert Cove Elementary School, recently won The Be Kind People Project Make a Difference Essay Contest. This contest gives students a voice while practicing key writing skills and focusing their attention and actions on making a difference. Brinley won T-shirts for her class and will be featured on a national video with Be Kind People Project.
Brinley's essay reads: "I can make a difference with my kindness rocks and the place I am calling Friendsip [sic] Mountain. Because of this virus we can’t go to school or see friends and that makes people very sad. My mom and I go hiking on trail 100 at Dreamy Draw Park and I paint beautiful rocks to place on the trail to make people smile. I have my mom write kind words to make people feel happy like when they are with their frinds [sic]. I have painted and set out over 100 rocks and people like them and smile and that makes me smile."
Assistant Superintendent Steve Jeras went all out for the PVSchools Good News end of year finale! This extended episode celebrates good news throughout the district and features a special tribute to the 2020 graduating class with special guests Matty Cardarople from Stranger Things and David Koechner from The Office and Anchorman.
