        This month's Random Act of Kindness award goes to Arianna Nicholson for showing her classmates how to be respectful and nice to others. She has never been mean or rude to her classmates.

        Our RAOK honoree is Dakota. He helped take notes for a friend who was home with the flu and then helped him organize his binder when he came back.

        After spending an hour and a half on the stage singing his lungs out, fifth grader Franz stays another half hour after rehearsal to collect and reset all the snow shovels, watering cans, beach balls, rakes and other stage materials for our upcoming production of "A Year With Frog and Toad." Everything must go in its proper place to ensure a successful production and Franz does just that and much more. His support and dedication to the drama club is always admirable. Franz wants all of us to be great and that attitude flows tremendously through our swamp.

         I would like to nominate Jonathan of class 4-308 for my honoree this month. When the girl sitting next to Jonathan left her notebook when she left early on the bus, he said he would take it for her. I told him that I wouldn't mind holding it overnight so he didn't have to carry an extra book home. He insisted that he take it and keep it safe for her. Jonathan proves that kindness wins!

        Christopher Paticsil an Abdullah Sarfraz are two of my fifth grade students that are not only fine students, but they are exceptionally helpful. Both young men help to clean the lunchroom everyday. They rarely have to be asked and do it because they are fine, helpful good citizens.
         Thank you Christopher and Abdullah for setting a fine example!
