“Chow Down with the Chief”

This program will begin in the 2019-2020 school year for students of all grade levels. Once a 6 weeks Chief Shaddix will bring a personal pizza of the student’s choice to lunch. The program is designed to reward good students and also to allow the students to build a positive relationship with law enforcement. School administrators and teachers will select one boy and one girl student each at Elementary, Jr. High, and High School. The selections of the students will be based on leadership, good behavior, positive attitudes, and academic performance.
