The first week of May is Teacher Appreciation Week. As a celebration of our great staff, Principal Shelley Keck conducted an essay contest. Students were invited to write an entry of 75 words or less on the topic, “What a teacher has meant to me.” Winning essays will be shared each day over announcements during Teacher Appreciation Week! We appreciate all of our great teachers!

Here are our winners:

Fifth-grader Brit Cook writes: They say that some teachers are like candles, they light the way for others. You are my candle Mrs. Pelech. I use to be bad at math, but now I am really good at it. You taught me very well and you were very patient with me. I am surprised your head didn’t explode from me asking you so many questions. You were calm and you showed me how to work the problems. You are an amazing math teacher. You are an inspiration to me Mrs. Pelech.

First-grader Casey Leath writes: Mr. Walton is very funny. When he dries his hands he throws the paper towels on the ground. He tells us lots of funny jokes. Also, he makes really funny faces. He always makes me feel better and he always makes me laugh. He lets us do a lot of fun activities. He is very good at drawing. He encourages us to always do the best we can. This is why I will always love Mr. Walton.

First-grader Ashlyn Flores writes: Mrs. Silva is my favorite teacher. She helps me become a better reader! She teachers fun math lessons! She is so nice. She makes me want to be a teacher because I want to help people and be a fun teacher too!

Fourth-grader Aiden Ballard writes: Ms. Bailey is a kind, faithful, trustworthy, funny and unique person. She is kind because she cares about all of her 4 classes! She’s faithful because she seems to never run out of faith in herself. She’s trustworthy because one time I gave her a paper to hold and she returned it safely the next week. She’s funny because she always makes all four of her classes crack up. She is unique because she never does something one way. She does it at least two different ways.

Third-grader Madison Jordan writes: My teacher Mrs. Royal influenced me to do my multiplication faster and better. Mrs. Royal taught me to do my multiplication so well that I got 100s on my first time! I do so well that I can do a whole test in 5 minutes and get a 100 on it. She got me so far ahead that when she checks my papers she has to tell me to sit down and that she doesn’t want to check it yet!
