The following students are our Students of the Month for November and the Key of Speak with Good Purpose.
Molly Kaufman, 3rd grader - Molly’s sweet, kind and gentle voice can be heard throughout the classroom saying simple yet uplifting comments to all her peers. She is often heard saying things like, "thank you", "Good job!", "You can do it", or "that's okay". Never have I overheard a negative comment come from her because she thinks before she speaks. With her positive comments she is also always willing to help her peers. In the classroom, the school, and playground Molly's kind words and positive encouragement stay the same. Molly is always looking for the positive in the day and in others. She communicates clearly, honestly and positively to the circumstances around her. Her positive and supportive words not only make our classroom a better place but our school.
Alice Broderick, 4th grader - The key of Speak with Good Purpose is taking a difficult situation or person and seeing and speaking of only the good. Alice is a young lady that can find the good in any person or situation, and will focus on the positive and tell anyone willing to listen. She comes to school with a smile on her face and always makes those that are around her feel better by her kind words and actions. She is the first to provide a peer with words of encouragement when they are struggling or feeling down. She is a friend to all and a cheerleader to those that need a little extra boost. Alice is a student that could be honored with any of the keys as she exemplifies them all on a day to day basis.
Dylan Kessler, 5th grader - Those who speak with good purpose understand the power of their words, and use their words in positive ways. Dylan's words are consistently positive, curious, honest and full of wonder and excitement. Speaking with good purpose is about timing and knowing the right thing to say and the right time, and sometimes knowing when to walk away and say nothing at all. Dylan is a great candidate for the key of speak with good purpose because his words are well meant and well timed. Often, Dylan's words can provide levity to a tense situation or can uplift someone who is needing encouragement.
