Harriet Stolzenberg
Teacher - computer lab

        I am proud to honor a very honest young lady this month. Shelby, of 3-A326, performed a very noble random act of kindness. We were in a special assembly when Shelby raised her hand to tell me she found a wallet. Inside there was a lot of money, yet she did not hesitate to turn it in. She made the owner of the wallet very thankful. I'm proud to know such a fine student!

        Class 3-204 and Mrs. Azzopardi would like to give this month's Random Act of Kindness award to two students: Sherelle Thomas and Nestor Carter. Sherelle always shares her snacks at lunch with her classmates, and doesn't ask for anything in return. Nestor always picks up after his classmates when they drop things on the floor. He doesn't want them to be upset because they lost something.
