Education in Action

Squeaky-clean Award

This week Kaylee was our Squeaky-clean Award winner. She has continued to keep a neat and orderly desk consistently throughout the year. No matter when I check inside her desk, it is always organized. Obviously, Kaylee is very conscientious of her work space, and I am very proud of her. Keep it up Kaylee! (Sorry about the photo bombers! They are very difficult to stop!!)

Student of the Week

Lily was our student of the week. She inspires to be a professional soccer player when she grows up, and I sure hope her dream comes true. Her favorite color is blue, her favorite subject is gym, and her favorite book is Junie B Jones. She also has a dog named Skirtel. Lily is a quiet and kind girl who gives 110 percent in school. I hope you enjoyed getting to know a little more about Lily.
