A classroom of second graders named as shining stars at VPS Monday
Teacher Julie Maxwell at VPS said she is proud to announce her second grade class, this week, received the"shining star" during the school's Mission Monday assembly for good behavior in the cafeteria and the hallways. Mission Monday is an event VPS students participate in on Monday mornings to help the students get excited and focused on the week, Maxwell explained. The students perform VPS cheers and students are recognized for certain things in school and outside of school. Birthdays are mentioned, and one class is picked each week as "shining stars.” That class keeps the red star in their room until the following Monday.
