Anthony Staff Members Show What it Means to be a Team

The third grade team at Anthony Elementary recently demonstrated teamwork at its finest. One of the team members, Kristy Sloan, faced medical issues that took her out of the classroom for a month. Ms. Sloan says her amazing third grade teammates, Lora Crawford and Cara Lake, picked up on her behalf in a big way.

As a thank you for all Crawford and Lake did, Sloan purchased matching Toms shoes for the team.
