        I would like to recognize three students because I have three groups of students. First, Kelsey Meador will be recognized because she is nice, helpful, and a very good friend to others. Next, Chris Anderson will be recognized because he is really nice, a great friend, and he is very funny and friendly. Last, Julie Printz will be recognized because she is a great friend and she is always kind and willing to give away supplies when others are in need. These students have been recommended by their peers to be recognized for their Random Acts of Kindness.

         I am proud to honor Joshua and Nicole of class 2-A225 for their random act of kindness. After my lesson I was circulating the room to see how the children were working. I noticed that these children quietly got out of their seats to help their classmates, Jean and Odika. I was thrilled that they took the initiative to help their classmates. It's nice to see such caring children! We all learned a good lesson from Joshua and Nicole that day!

Teacher - Music

        Nicholas is a multitalented fifth grader at the Steele Elementary School. In drama club, he will be playing "Toad" in "A Year With Frog and Toad" which is our school musical. We salute Nicholas for preparing food baskets for needy families on Thanksgiving. He filled laundry baskets with boxes of Stove Top Stuffing, canned yams, cans of cranberry sauce, lots of sweets and other Thanksgiving treats! He saved Thanksgiving in the "Nick" of time!

Stacey Caskey
Teacher - grade 4

        Our RAOK honoree for this month is Keldon. He went out of his way to make a new student feel right at home in Asheville. It's so hard to be a new student and Keldon jumped right in and made friends with Peter.


St. Thomas Aquinas School
Celeste Davis
Teacher - grade 4

        David White is our nominee for October. David is a terrific member of our class who is a good friend to all. He constantly is looking for ways to help around the classroom. He never wastes a moment. He has wonderful ideas and enjoys sharing stories with us.
        Mollie Battista is our nominee for November. Mollie demonstrates random acts of kindness every day. She goes out of her way to help classmates. She straightens out the bookcases without being asked. She is always on the look out for lost items and returns them to her classmates. I am glad she is part of our class. Everyone appreciates her kindness.
