“Franklin Family Feud” celebrates positive actions


“Family Feud” was the name of the game Friday at Franklin Elementary, as the school celebrated positive student behavior.

Franklin students are asked to embody the positive actions and attitudes of “R” Cats: Respectful, Caring, Active Learners, Thoughtful Choices, and Stay Safe. By following these traits, students become “bucket fillers”, or people who support others with positive words and actions.

When students are witnessed exhibiting one or more of these traits, they are awarded a “bucket”. Participants in “Franklin Family Feud” were then selected from students who had been identified as “bucket fillers” so far this school year.

Franklin students earned an impressive 618 buckets before the Oct. 14 assembly – each bucket representing one occasion when teachers and staff witnessed a Franklin student fulfilling one of the “R” Cats traits.

During “Franklin Family Feud” student teams competed to answer questions about “R” Cats and how students can be recognized for good behavior.
