Congratulations to our GDE Student of the Week! 2nd-grader, Lylah Youngblood, is our winner. Mrs. Jones said, "Lylah is polite, respectful, and eager to help her peers. No matter the place, she is always demonstrating qualities of a great leader. In the hall, Lylah can be found walking with a purpose and careful not to disturb others. When Lylah is in the library she listens attentively, raises her hand before speaking, and always stays on task. This week Lylah wanted a specific book during library checkout. She waited patiently, without interruption, while I assisted the students before her. Her patience and gratitude is always appreciated" 🥰 Woo-hoo, Lylah! #GrowingLionLeaders
