For the 2019-2020 school year, Red River Elementary has selected “SUPER HEREOS” as the schoolwide theme to create a positive environment for students and staff. Each month, Principal Deville and the Staff Recognition Committee selects five staff members who will be named Super Heroes. Our monthly Super Heroes are recognized for their heroism for taking on difficult tasks, selflessness for putting the kids and others’ needs before their own, humility for adhering to protocols, team effort, and attendance.
For the month of August out five Super Heroes are Betty Owens, Custodian, Lawanna Fowler, PreK Special Education Teacher, Gladys Griffith, 1st Grade Special Education Teacher, Demetrice McDuffy, Head Start Paraprofessional, and Joceyln French, 3rd/5th Grade Special Education Teacher.
Our Super Heroes are spotlighted on the main hallway bulletin board, presented with a certificate, granted a duty-free lunch pass, and given a bag with their favorite snacks personally selected by Principal Deville. In addition, our PAWsome Parents gifted them with a basket from Red River Industries.
