Tammy Wallis (principal) proudly said, "The kids did a wonderful job, their behavior was excellent which is why we want to reward them and it is hard work going to school and learning new things. So we want them to realize it is important, it makes a difference when they work hard. I certainly appreciate all the teachers and committee members that made this happen. We had several teachers that worked very closely with me to put this awards assembly together and make it a little more special for the kids.
Congratulations Stafford Elementary students job well done.
