Random Act of Kindness of the Month

May 2000


Seneca Ridge Middle School
Judy Engel
Teacher grade 6-8

The Random Act of Kindness winner for the month of May is Alison, an eighth grader at our school. Kelly, also an eighth grader, nominated her because Alison volunteers at a hospital. Alison has been volunteering at the hospital for a few months now. She goes into the hospital about every two weeks to make baby baskets for the newborn babies and she also visits people in the hospital that do not have their family with them.

It was very difficult to select one student for the Random Act of Kindness of the Month Award because this month two students stood out in my mind. They are Ambre Farrington and Maggie May Turchio. I am nominating these two children.
At lunch time the children bring down a book to read. It is expected of them. One day the principal was in, and was disappointed in the amount of children who did not have one. Children started to get pulled out. Ambre quickly lent a child in another class a book to read, so that that child would not get into trouble. The two girls aren't even friends, but what a wonderful way to begin a special friendship. I am sure the girl in 3-206 is grateful to Ambre. I was so proud of her when I heard this.
Maggie May Turchio is always around to share her supplies with children who may need them. She will also give up her own supplies so that others will have something to use. Now, Maggie May is sharing supplies. What an incredible child!

My honoree this month is Jabari LeGendre. He is not nominated for any one deed, but for his everyday goodness. If anyone seems troubled or hurt, Jabari will be there to see how he can help and make things better. He is a very kindhearted boy who has a wonderful sense of righteousness. He's just a joy to know!
