Will C. – Case
This student has a warm greeting and a smile for everyone around. If something needs to be done, I turn around and it has been done, quietly and well. This student seeks out ways to make things go more smoothly and make the class better. Even the students notice the difference made by this classmate. As a matter of fact, they recently said he would be the student most likely to rescue all of us in an emergency. The student who makes a difference is my classes and is our hero is…Will C.
I cannot imagine a more positive individual. If it is raining, he will say the sun will shine tomorrow. If the test is tomorrow and there are two others to study for, he will say, “Well, I will have to study harder for one night.” The magnetic positive energy off one person can make such a difference and he does in the classroom! Our class smiles every day he is present.

only did he make honor roll this quarter, he got a 4.0.

Lead by Example Award Winners
Ryan V. – Kamiyama
Ryan demonstrated excellent leadership qualities this quarter as he could often be found helping his classmates learning dances and getting them involved. Ryan would go over to his classmates, who were hesitant, and get them to dance. Whether it was helping them with the dance steps or helping them stay on beat, Ryan was a big help in class. Before you knew it, his classmates were dancing away. Ryan is also a great citizen of our earth and Mrs. Malpede would be proud of Ryan. Ryan is often asking if he can go recycle a bottle he picked up. Ryan’s leadership is growing and hopefully it will continue to grow.
