Payne Elementary is pleased to announce the October Students of the month. “Initiative” was the word of the month and these students displayed that quality by doing the right thing without being told. Eight of these students also received a monthly movie pass for their family to the “Van Wert Cinemas”. We appreciate the hard work the students put forth to achieve this award.
