Josh Drean at Elwin Elementary

     We were excited to welcome Josh Drean to our school this week. Josh Drean is an international youth speaker who has spoken at hundreds of schools to inspire and empower students to handle life's challenges positively. Josh Drean came to encourage Elwin Bulldogs to represent themselves, their family, and their school in a positive way. Each grade span attended a presentation that was customized for their age.
     The overall message was to be positive and do what you love. Josh Drean taught the students that to represent, or REP, means to have Resiliency, Empathy, and achieve your true Potential. He is a talented speaker and beatboxer and shared personal stories with the students in order for them to truly understand the message. All of us enjoyed spending time with Josh Drean! 
     Below are links to some short videos that were taken during the assemblies. Enjoy!
