Student of the Month 1

One of our early winners of the “Student of the Month”  was a fifth grader whose father had deserted the family. To make things worse, his mother was a drug and alcohol abuser.  The young man was blind in one eye and was a straight “C” student.

It was brought to our attention that this young man  stayed in from recess regularly to help the slower kids with their home work.  I wish you could have seen his face when he received his award.

What a difference we can make in a child’s life if we focus on their strengths and give them a little encouragement.
