 Del Rio Pawsitives and Character Counts – Student

 of the Month

Sheep, Steers, and Pigs...Oh MY! Carsyn S is sweet, kind, compassionate third grader at Del Rio School. She is kind to others and always has a smile on her face. She works hard in her studies and still makes time for her animals. Carsyn participated in the Yavapai County Expo on September 5-8, 2019. Expo is a weekend where 4-H and FFA members come together to showcase the animals they have raised throughout the year. Carsyn raised 5 award winning birds this year: 3 meat chickens named:   Sprinkle, Cupcake, and Frosting, a turkey named Jeff, and Flower, a show chicken. Each day Carsyn had to feed and water her animals, practice handling them, and often participated in practice shows to prepare for the big weekend. Next year Carsyn is looking forward to raising a goat.

Beyond being a part of FFA for two years, Carsyn is highly active in several school clubs. She is a member of Student Council so she “can help plan cool things and share information with my class”. She is in Clay Club because she enjoys making things, “I am so excited to paint my clay monster this week”. Lastly, Carsyn is a part of the schools Recycle Club “to make the school beautiful and support a good cause.”

We are so proud of Carsyn and the variety of talent and energy she brings to Del Rio School and our community.

 Red Ribbon Week

             Red Ribbon Week is almost upon us! Time to show our Cougar pride and commitment in raising awareness for this great campaign!

                 Started back in 1985, Red Ribbon Week has become the oldest and largest drug campaign in the country. Citizens in communities across the United States   began wearing Red Ribbons as a symbol of their commitment to raise drug awareness and to honor murdered DEA agent,  Enrique  Camarena, and his fight against drugs.

We have an exciting week planned for our students at Del Rio! There will be a different theme each day (listed on the back), door decorating contests and other fun  activities! So remember to wear your Red proudly and have the courage to say NO to drugs!
