K-6 Student of the Week

This week's student of the week is Gabby Taylor. Gabby is a great student at TAS. She is always ready to learn, on task, and following directions. Gabby is always willing to help her classmates and teachers and is always the first to volunteer to lend a helping hand. She is kind towards others and her positive attitude is one we can all learn from. Gabby is a great example for others and is always reaching and exceeding our pride expectations with a smile on her face. Congratulations Gabby- Ms. Holmes.
