On Valentine's Day, the winning students of the latest GRIT contest were taken on a trip to the Edge Ice Arena where students had the chance to ice skate as well as enjoy a snack. Once again our students learned that showing patience and perseverance has great rewards. Even the youngest Estes student will tell you that when things get hard you cannot quit---you keep going and show GRIT! Be sure to check out our photo gallery for more photos.
Estes students continue showing passion and perseverance to
earn GRIT tickets. Every time a student earns a GRIT ticket they are entered
into a contest where names are randomly drawn from each classroom. This means
the more GRIT tickets they receive the better their chances are for winning!
This time the winners will be rewarded with an ice skating trip to Edge Ice
Center in February. Take a look at this student created video about GRIT: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JWMnPEV9GcY
Students at Estes learn early that GRIT means showing passion and perseverance and never giving up even when something is hard. Before Christmas break, Estes students learned that showing GRIT really pays off. Students that had earned GRIT tickets this past nine weeks were entered into two contests where their names were randomly selected to be winners. The first student names selected, enjoyed coke and popcorn while watching the movie Moanna at the Malco movie theater. The second students names selected won new bicycles and helmets donated by our local Academy Sports + Outdoors store. Be sure to stop by our photo gallery to see our happy GRIT winners!
