Citizen of the Week
Leonora Hailer '30

Congratulations to Leonora Hailer for being named Citizen of the Week! She is always cheerful and helpful. She comes in the door with a smile and an optimistic approach to the day. Her honesty is well known. For example, earlier this week, she found a $20 bill on the hallway floor and told her teacher about it. That teacher was able to return the $20 to its very grateful owner. This example represented several of the pillars of Cape Cod Academy all at once - honesty, compassion, and respect.
