If you look up "kindness" in a dictionary, you will most likely find a picture of Monze. To start each day, she greets everyone with a smile and a "good morning". Also Monze will often inquire as to how your weekend was or what upcoming plans you have. She seems to get alonw well with all students and staff. Monze is grealy respected by all!!

During group projects and partner work time, Evan is always high ly requested because his dedicationa nd goo-natured personality make him so much fun to work with. Keep being you, Evan!


Julian Feeney

Julian Feeney is incredibly kind. In fact, his ability to reach out and assist others is contagious. In his academic and commons area groups, teh bar for treating each other well is raised just by his presence. We ould like to thank Julian for all the kindness he spreads when he helps his peers, asks how other are doing and thanks us all almost daily!

Diane Onate-Penilla is the epitome of kindness. She constantly notices when others need assistance and jumps in to help even when she is busy. As teachers we observe her calmly going abou her day, including others in the process of classwork and social opportunities. Her efforts to be kind show courage, empathy, and confidence. Never stop being your kind self, Diane!
