Harold is always so kind and respectful. We hear him trying to help other students all of the time! Not only that, but he helps the teacher as well. He uses a great growth mindset and never gives up! Keep up the great work, Harold!
November's character trait is "growth minded" and Isabela is a wonderful example of this! Izzy is always excited to learn new things and to take on challenges. She consistently finds connections to past and present concepts and takes responsibility for her own learning. Isabela is a wonderful, respectful student and a joy to teach.
Kanon is a wonderful student, classmate, and friend. He loves to learn new things, and has lots of wonderful thoughts to share with his partners during Turn and Talk. He works hard and always tries his very best! Kanon is also a very thoughtful young man and treats all of his classmates with respect and kindness. Thanks for being so AWESOME, Kanon!!!
Carson is an awesome 4th grade student. He ALWAYS gives 100%. He is great role model for his peers, but also for the younger students. His never give up attitude is seen on a daily basis. Carson is a asset to Merryman School and we are lucky to have him as part of out 4th grade class.
