A different value was represented each month for the citizen of the month. Last year every student was the citizen of the month. They wanted to make it more meaningful this year and only one student per class would be chosen every month. Hadley was getting nervous as the months passed, wondering if she would ever be chosen. Telling me how she was so close to getting "Gratitude" but then another student said 'Thank You' two more times than she did that month. She was so happy when she found out she was the Citizen of the Month for March. The value was cooperation. I had no doubt she would be chosen as the citizen of the month. She loves school and is an excellent student and friend.
This is what her teacher said about Hadley :
"Whenever we do any group projects, she helps her group to cooperate and stay focused on the assignment. If there is ever a disagreement, Hadley helps her group solve the problem. She is a leader in our classroom. She treats everyone with kindness and respect. She always listens and follows directions. And I can always count on Hadley to always be on task and to work well with anyone. Thank you, Hadley!"
