The Purple Ambassadors is a 4th grade Honor Society. The ambassadors consist of students maintaining high academic excellence in all areas. This group of students exhibit their academic skills, good character & willingness to serve others within our community.
The purpose of the Purple Ambassadors is to produce lifelong community members. The experience of being a Purple Ambassador should motivate the students to want to do more for others. Purple Ambassadors are a symbol of honor in our school. Several Purple Ambassadors have wanted to be a part of the honor society since 2nd Grade. This is a launching pad for a well rounded student who wants to achieve greatness.
In order to be a Purple Ambassador, you must maintain all A’s including conduct each nine week period. Also, office or bus referrals are not allowed to remain a Purple Ambassador.
The Purple Ambassadors have a meaningful role at Tallassee Elementary School. They are hall monitors, lunchroom helpers, peer tutors, office helpers, morning announcers & new student orientation.

The volunteer service allows students to experience fulfillment in giving back to the community.
