Paper Plate Award

Congratulations to our Heart of Gold recipient, Will Fish. This boy has one of the biggest hearts I've encountered. He fills my days with hugs and encouragement and always goes out of his way to show how much he cares. No matter what is going on in our day, he never fails to remind me that kindness and showing that you care about someone is one of the most important things in this world. I appreciate Will's ability to always make me feel special and how he shares kindness with everyone in our classroom.
