EVART— Evart Middle School students and staff recently took time to gather in order to celebrate student success across the school spectrum.

The highly anticipated monthly event is typically held the first Friday of the month. Awards were given in the core areas of English Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies.

Students were also awarded for their sportsmanship, musical and artistic talents, as well as outstanding citizenship.

The entire EMS school family recognizes the importance of celebrating student character and achievement.

As students cheer for and applaud their fellow classmates, a sense of community and pride can certainly be felt throughout the auditorium.
