Fairgrieve Elementary students who never gave up through recent challenges were rewarded with the school’s Virtue of the Month honor during a recent Morning Express program.

For their efforts with perseverance, students received “brag tags” to add to their collection, as well as applause from peers, teachers and special guests. Principal Jean Sampsell told the student body that perseverance is an amazing quality that all can endure.

“Those efforts help (you) to be successful,” she said.
