Specialty Shout Outs

We're raising the stakes! Beginning this week, only five students will be given the Specialty Spotlight each week. The specialty teachers will each choose one student who displayed the monthly character trait in their specialty classes during the week. The students will be announced each week at Friday morning's assembly, and the specialty teachers will share their reasons for choosing the students.

Aiden shows compassion by holding the door open for others in technology class, even after his class has left. He also shows compassion by encouraging younger students to keep trying.

Angelina is new to Chesterbrook and every week she shows many different character traits during spanish class. She is always happy, ready to help, has a positive attitude and makes everyone feel good in class.

Arianna showed compassion in music class when a classmate became frustrated with her independent work. Arianna made her friend feel better and helped her to find the answer. She is always there to lend a helping hand when her classmates need help finding their place while reading through a new song!

Emma showed compassion by helping another student who got knocked down during a game of tag in PE class. She asked, "Are you okay?" to the student while helping her up.

When a classmate was feeling sad about being last in line in art class, Kadence showed compassion by letting him line up in front of her.
