April's Kindness Hero
Congratulations to our April Kindness Hero Adriana from Mrs. Gormley’s 4th grade class! PTA Advocacy presented Adriana with a special medal, certificate and a cookie party for her class!
Adriana was nominated by Mrs. Gormley who said: “Adriana is a ray of sunshine for her classmates and teachers. Her smile, positive attitude, and helpful nature are always at work in our classroom. Her thoughtful gestures are countless, but some include coloring pictures to brighten her teacher’s day, sharing supplies when a classmate may need something, including others so no one feels left out when working in groups or going on field trips, and always being quick to volunteer when anything needs to be done in the classroom. She is a role model for the Binks Way each and every day.”
Adriana, you are a true kindness hero! We are so proud of you!
