Dear Families,

It has been wonderful to celebrate Kindness at MCA this January! Teachers were asked to nominate "kindest kids" for recognition this month, and they all told me it was too hard to narrow it down to just two students! ALL of our Maranatha kids have been busy this month with random acts of kindness like writing sweet notes of encouragement, leaving a surprise to make someone smile, and sharing their favorite school supplies.

We recognized the following students in chapel today for being models of exceptional kindness this month:

Kindergarten- Emmy Leon, Juliette Ploetz

1st Grade- Ben Baumler, Sherri Lou Heddings

2nd Grade- Addison Lundquist, Ian Casto

3rd Grade (Mrs. Peck's class)- Titus Blackford, Hudson Whittington

3rd Grade (Mrs. McFarland's class)- Charlotte Allen, Mallory Brown

4th Grade- Judah Blackford, Emma Wyckoff

5th Grade (Miss Hughes' class)- Jalaina Tillman, Myles Ross

5th Grade (Mrs. Fortin's class)- Morgan Ash, Will Porter

6th Grade (Mrs. Engminger's class)- Danica Leon, Lexi Ingalsbe

6th Grade (Mrs. Prowell's class)- Ava Oglesby, Julie Aragon
