Rocky Peak Virtual Elementary Staff Get Slimed for a Good Cause

Staff at Rocky Peak Virtual Elementary after getting slimed Students and teachers at Rocky Peak Virtual Elementary School participated in ‘Walk to Read’ this school year and worked toward the program’s reading goals. Principal Ross Menlove promised if they hit their goals, they would get to slime staff members.

Recently, the students reached their reading goals, and Principal Menlove followed through with his promise by getting slimed, along with the school’s digital and instructional coaches.

Great job to the students and staff at Rocky Peak Virtual Elementary for hitting your reading goals. And, great job to the Rocky Peak staff for finding a fun way to reward students for their hard-earned accomplishments.
