Rosalie Azzopardi
Teacher - Grade 3
        This month's award goes to Dkeama Alexis for her eagerness to help organize the classroom and keep it clean. She is a great help to her classmates and teacher.

St. Thomas Aquinas School
Celeste Davis
Teacher - grade 4

         This month I would like to nominate Sofia Olexovitch for her random acts of kindness this month. Sofia sits next to a boy in our classroom who is new to our school. She always makes sure he has everything he needs and makes sure that he is on the right page. She has done this without any prompting from me. These acts of kindness make her a very special fourth grader.

Southwest Elementary
Kristin Clark
Teacher - grade 5
        Keilley is our pick for random acts of kindness. She has been very helpful to the members of her pod and to the rest of the class. She is respectful of people around her at all times.



Steele School
Scott Stolzenberg
Teacher - Music

        Roy is a multitalented fifth grader at the Steele School. Throughout lunch and recess, Roy searches the halls looking and listening for students running in the hallway. When he finds someone not following school rules, he politely asks them not to run and to demonstrate walking the proper school way. Roy's fast paced responses make our school a slower and safer place.

        My first honoree for the Random Act of Kindness of the month is a new student to our school. Temika is in Mrs. Kahn's kindergarten class. Not only is she so young, but also she is a physically challenged student, yet she never hesitates to help those around her. Her enthusiasm for learning is contagious and her winning smile lights our lives!


Alton R-IV Elementary School
Julie R. Thompson
3rd Grade eMINTS Teacher

         I wish to nominate Tiffany for this month's Random Acts of Kindness Student.   She is considerate of others and always  uses polite comments when speaking to her peers.  When she has outgrown her clothes or shoes, she gives them to those who may need them.  I am proud she is in our classroom.

        My submission for this month is a wonderful girl named Adriana Yara. The reason I feel she should be chosen is because she was caught being very helpful in class to another student. She always has an extra pencil to share or crayons to loan out if someone doesn't have them. She is always ready to point out where something is in the class if another person doesn't remember. She waits patiently to eat her snack until everyone is finished with their work all the while taking up any of her free time with reading a book from her book bin. Good Job Adriana! Keep it up.


Tipton Elementary School
Mary Ann Haley
Teacher - grade 3
         I would like to nominate my class. We just made decorations to brighten up a kidney dialysis ward at a hospital. Way to go!

Teacher - Kindergarten

         Christopher is always there to lend a helping hand! If he sees a classmate having difficulty due to a disability, he politely offers his assistance. This has created a positive atmosphere in the classroom that has other children learning to be polite and helpful. It is a pleasure having Christopher as a member of our class!
