Melanie has been a rock star this whole year. She has grown tremendously in reading and math. She has also blossomed into a beautiful writer.

She is a supportive classmate and she sees the strengths in her friends, her teachers, her family, and everyone around her. She is truly an amazing member of our MDA community, and her year in second grade shows that she will go so far in life! Way to go Melanie!

In honor of our Kindness campaign, we decided to honor a student who embodies what it means to be kind at your core. Jessica has a servant heart and demonstrated her willingness to help and serve others this past quarter especially. She has been there for a friend in particular as their note taker, aid, organizer and best of all, encourager. She was willing to step up to the task and in the process, proved just how strong and determined she is when it comes to helping others. We are proud to honor her this month.
