The Dragons of Davis Elementary put their own twist on Red Ribbon Week last month. The week is typically dedicated to promoting a drug-free life. At Davis they decided to widen their focus to include being kind and stomping out bullying.

Count On Me is the theme for Davis Elementary this year, so when one of their own staff members needed help with medical expenses, the school held a Chuck your Change challenge sponsored by the PTA.

Students and staff emptied their piggy banks to raise $2,500 for the Ryan and Marie Watkins family. Marie is an intervention aide at Davis and Ryan’s mother Ellen is the computer specialist. The Watkins family expressed their deep appreciation to the school and community. The Be Kind campaign will continue through the remainder of the year at the school.
