Poplar Road Elementary
Menlia Trammell

        Nicole Lineberger has for the second year in a row collected money, shopped and bought paper, folders, rulers, supplies, and book bags for needy students at Poplar Road. She has placed collection jars in her grandmother's store and other stores for collection, and her grandmother helped her shop.

        Our November honoree is Alix. She goes out of her way to be kind to everyone she meets. Alix is a wonderful student and role model at Claxton Elementary.


Brushy Creek Elementary

K.C. is a very courteous young man. He always holds the door open for our class when we enter the cafeteria--without even having to be asked! He exhibits wonderful manners at all times. He is also an excellent student to have in our class. WAY TO GO K.C.!!!





Steele School
Scott Stolzenberg
Teacher - music

        Brian is a multitalented 4th grader at the Steels school. Brian has been my right hand man since I broke mine. He spends his lunchtime cutting, pasting, writing and helping me prepare for all the music classes I teach. Brian is very generous to give up his recess in order to make other student's music education more special.

Harriet Stolzenberg
Teacher - computer lab

        My honoree this month is Kiara, from class 5-309. When she saw that one of her friends was upset during lunch, she came to my room to ask for help. After trying to make her friend feel better she knew she couldn't resolve her friend's problem. She was mature enough to know she needed additional help. As her former teacher it was nice to see that she felt she could turn to me in time of need. I think anyone would be lucky to have such a thoughtful and caring person for a friend.

         This month's Random Act of Kindness award goes to Courtney Crooks from Astral 3-204. Courtney was kind enough to clean up her class' lunchroom table when some classmates left their trays. Thanks to Courtney the next class was able to eat at a clean table.

Narragansett Elementary School
Carol Batchelder
Teacher - Technology

        Anthony, a second grader in Mrs. Smith's class, is a kind and caring student and big brother. At the beginning of this year, Anthony helped out his younger brother, Jonathan, who was very worried about starting Kindergarten. Each day Anthony walked his brother to his class and visited him during the day to comfort him and give him moral support. Thanks to Anthony, Jonathan is now loving Kindergarten and school!





Alton Elementary School
Julie Thompson
Teacher - grade 3

         My first honoree is Hope. During the first two weeks of this school year, Hope independently raised money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and for the treatment of pediatric cancers. This was especially meaningful to me, Hope's teacher, as I was recuperating from cancer surgery and treatment at the time. This effort on Hope's behalf is only one instance of the kindness and thoughtfulness that she always shows to others.
