Purdy Elementary Principal Jeff Swadley has announced character education medal winners for December. Purdy's kindergarten through fourth grade teachers, in partnership with elementary counselor Gary Jurgensen, teach a different character trait each month.

At the end of the month each grade level nominates three students who best exemplify the trait presented. These students receive character medals from Swadley.

Area businesses display posters reinforcing each month's message.
