Students recognized at first PR-B ROAR Rally of the year


The teachers at Pine River-Backus Elementary School recognized students for good behavior Friday, Sept. 27.

ROAR stands for Responsible, On-task, Always safe and Respectful, and teachers at the elementary level nominate students every month for golden ticket awards for these behaviors.

Students at the rally also participated in the school cheer and a Wii dance to “The Eye of the Tiger” by Survivor.
