Day of Action @ Ted Vick

TVS Day of Action

Ted Vick School celebrated Day of Action with PTA passing out Lifesavers in the parking lot.

They handed out 250 lifesaver messages to families reminding them to safeguard their students from dangerous internet and social media activity.

During recess, students joined hands in unity circles to support students of all makes. We also had door decorating competitions during the day. We closed the day with a rally, giving gifts to students who have exemplified what a true friend is. It was a great (albeit busy) day!
