Rosalie Azzopardi
Teacher - Grade 3
        This month's Random Act of Kindness is awarded to Keylee Sampson of Astral 3-204. Keylee is a wonderful role model for her classmates. She is respectful, courteous, and works very hard to do her best. Keylee only does work that she can be proud of, and I am very proud of her!


Claxton Elementary School
Stacey Caskey
Teacher - Grade 4

         Our RAOK for the month is Lucy. She has helped the new children in our class adapt by sitting with them each day at lunch and helping them get their homework done together each day.


Steele School
Scott Stolzenberg
Teacher - Music

        Jose is in first grade at the Steele School. He speaks Spanish fluently and has only been speaking English for a year and a half. Jose is being recognized this month for assisting a brand new student in his class who only speaks Spanish. Whether it's showing him where to put his coat, explaining to him in Spanish what to do, or just being his friend, Jose makes another student understand and feel comfortable. Not just in our school, but in America. Muy bien Jose!

         My Random Act of Kindness of the Month award goes to Brandon, of class 1-107. Not only did he take time out from using the computer to help his classmate, but also he exhibited such kindness. I watched as he demonstrated for Christian how to use a program. He spoke in a calm manner as he showed his classmate how to do it. I think we all could learn something from a teacher like Brandon!


Leading Edge Academy
Mike Hart
Teacher - Grade 6

        I want to recommend someone from my class. This student goes way beyond what would be the "extra Mile" -- when new Students enroll in our class, this student spends a great deal of time catching the new students up to speed. He lets them use his notes. He explains the material so that they can do well on tests, and he never whines or complains about doing it. When they ask questions he is so patient, and never gets frustrated with them. I am so proud of him... His name is Zach Ekman.


Bellevue School
Kathryn Pierre
Teacher - Year 1

        Libby has been nominated by her classmates to receive recognition for her caring and kindness. Libby is a good friend to members of Room 4 and she is always happy for friends to join in with her in playground games. We really like having Libby in the class and we thank her for being such a responsible person.
