What would you do if you found money on the ground? Pocket it and hope no one saw you? Ashley Harney and Alex O’Brien showed true Patriot character recently when they each separately found money at school.

On different days and at different times, each student stumbled upon cash that someone had dropped or lost. Instead of playing “Finders Keepers” and assuming it was their lucky day, Harney and O’Brien put themselves in the losers’ shoes and turned the money in so it could go to its rightful owner.

Mr. Johnston was so proud of these students and their character, that he rewarded their honesty with gift certificates. Thanks, Ashley and Alex, for showing true Patriot character. Good for you...and good for us all.
