The group picture is our latest recipients of the “Character Award for Dependability”

The next picture is of Ian Tomblin who found “Irresponsible Ivan”. “Irresponsible Ivan” is one of Mrs. Warren’s “Character Development Children” who hadn’t been very responsible all year and had gone missing. Kindergartener Ian Tomblin was the student that finally found Ivan. Mrs. Warren was happy that Ian had been looking for him all year and found him “hanging in a tree”!
