  • JANUARY  Nominations 

    Student
    Davin (Nominated by Ms. Swales) Davin is a polite young-man. He ensures that a seat is pulled out for me to sit at during class. If I forget to put the chair back in its place, he ensures that it is put back at the end of class as well. He frequently asks how I am doing and is telling me to have a great day. He is responsible by seeking me out on a weekly basis to complete a task for me. I love how thoughtful he is!
