Students at Hallie Randall Elementary in Fruitvale participated in their annual STAAR Success Pep Rally May 6. Students Pre-k through fifth grade attended the pep rally offering support and encouragement for students in grades three through five.

Guest speaker was Kirbee Taylor, national weight lifting champion for Rains ISD.  This is the third time Kirbee has accepted an invitation to motivate and encourage Fruitvale students. 

“She is a fantastic speaker with real life applicable experiences that relate to the students,”said counselor Leslie Joslin.

In March, Kirbee talked with the fourth and fifth grade students before the first round of tests.  She challenged students to do their very best for themselves, Joslin said.
