December Elementary Viking Valor

Elementary School

This student always has a smile on her face when she comes into the classroom every morning. She is a great helper in the classroom and always works hard. Following the school rules is something she takes pride in, and she isn't afraid to remind others what they are. She goes out of her way to help a friend or the teacher. She is an "includer" and invites others to play with her if they are feeling left out. Most importantly, she loves school and always wants to learn more. "What are we doing next?" is what you will hear her say! Keep working hard, Oakley Norby!
