At Nags Head Elementary, January Students of the Month for Fairness were honored in a ceremony on Jan. 26.

These students are role models for the characteristics that comprise the concept of Fairness: playing by the rules, taking turns and sharing, being open-minded, and treating all people fairly.

The students were chosen by their teachers and peers, who made these comments:

“He always plays by the rules in any game.”

“She makes sure everyone has a chance to participate.”

“She gave me a pencil sharpener when I really needed one bad!”
