Lansing School District has started a new tradition! At the April 17 Board Meeting, a student led the Pledge of Allegiance. This is Philip Dickey, a fourth grader in Mrs. Rhodes's class at Reavis. Philip is an Honor Roll student, consistently demonstrates kindness and caring for others, asks a lot of questions and is an active participant in class, and is a member of the PBIS Student Leadership Team. We are hoping to have other students lead the Pledge at future Board Meetings. Great job Philip!
