BANDON — Ocean Crest Elementary School honors students who are observed doing something reflecting the month's character focus with the “Caught You Being Good” program. Each month reflects a character focus at the school, with students showing LEADERSHIP the theme for April.
Students who show an example of LEADERSHIP during the month were given a Caught You Being Good entry into a monthly drawing.
