Pleasant Lea Elementary’s commitment to greeting and welcoming students at school each day isn’t new. But this year, Principal Aaron Barnett says, PLE decided to “take it up a notch.” With the help of LSHS Athletic Director Tracy Bertoncin, LSHS athletes visited PLE for drop-off Friday morning to help out with “High Five Friday.” This year, PLE staffers aim to greet students at least six times a day.
Thanks to our high school athletes for modeling what it means to be a leader to our elementary-aged students.
