Zane Moyer, second grader at South Whitley Elementary School, took one look at his great-grandmother, Leola Williamson, and ran to her arms during the first ever First Class Bulldogs assembly.
At South Whitley Elementary School, teachers, staff and administrators use a positive approach to teach students. SWESâ€™ nickname is â€śthe Bull Dogs,â€ť
according to Principal Bruce Hansen. "We practice positive school involvement here. We take notice of the good things students do every day,â€ť said Hansen.
Each day students are given the opportunity to receive â€śBull Dog Bones.â€ť
The bones are then placed in a container and the student having the most bones in a trimester is named a First Class Bull Dog.
