PBIS "Spotlight" from Ms. Dahl's Class

Although all 2nd grade students work hard at the LC and on CC each day, it is important to recognize students that go above and beyond. N. Adriano is a perfect example of working hard to achieve her goals. N. Adriano works diligently on her OLS coursework every day. In the classroom at the LC, she is a leader who inspires those around her to work harder. She is always willing to help a friend who may need a little extra support. N. Adriano is a top participant in all CC sessions and consistently scores high on all assessments. Most importantly, she is a thoughtful and caring member of our class. She generously shares her supplies, openly shows compassion and empathy for those around her, and helps make our classroom a great place to learn. Way to go N. Adriano!
