        I would like to nominate Connor, a 3rd grader in Mrs. Blumenbaum's class. "He is absolutely amazing -- he's always thinking of others--in fact, during the Battle of the Books he shook hands with opposing team mates -- this having not been talked about -- Connor said, "Good Luck" -- he actually set the tone!‚Äù exclaimed Mrs. B. Also, Mrs. Shea came personally to thank him for reading to her Mom on class visits to a local senior center. Her Mom remembered Connor and his stories for 2 MONTHS -- which is a miracle!!!Mrs. Shea had tears in her eyes as she, Connor, and Mrs. B talked. You can tell Mrs. Blumenbaum really thinks Connor's great!

        I would like to take this opportunity to nominate Ms. Fishman and her Project Read plus Math class for the Random Act of Kindness of the Month Award. Every afternoon during snack (before the children go up to their after school class), they take it upon themselves to make sure our school's lunchroom is clean. They go from table to table picking up whatever is needed and will pick up things from the floor even though it is not from their class. This selfless act is so appreciated by our administration, custodians, and myself that I couldn't let it go without telling you about their deeds.
