MOUNT VERNON — Fifth-graders at Twin Oak recently celebrated responsible behavior with a real auction.
Teachers surprised students with auctioneer Steve Jagger of Jagger Auctioneers. Normally the auctions are held at the end of each semester. Students collect tickets for the auctions by being caught being responsible, generous, courteous, and showing many other good character qualities discussed during the year. They then have the opportunity to purchase items at the auctions teachers hold in their classrooms.
