High Five Fridays: Correctional Institution Officers, Elementary Kids Trade Encouragement

March 12, 2018

Corrections officers from Century Correctional Institution and students from Jay Elementary School traded lots of high fives Friday.

The Jay Elementary School PTO started High Five Friday to connect students with uniformed officials and rescue heroes from the community. It’s an effort to keep kids enthusiastic and energized about learning.

The uniformed officials stop by on Friday mornings and give the students high fives and words of encouragement.

    My students absolutely LOVE giving high fives and meeting our local EMS, Fire Rescue, and Law Officials. What a fantastic way to bring the community together!
