Student of the Month – Zoey Howard – Kindergarten

The Hollister Early Childhood Center is excited to announce Zoey Howard as our student of the month! 

Zoey’s teacher, Ms. Birk, shares that Zoey is a very responsible, motivated and well mannered young lady. She comes to school every day excited to learn and shows determination to do her best.  Zoey is always kind, not only to teachers, but to others around her.  She is also willing to help others when in need whether she is asked to do so or not. Zoey is a great example of what a Hollister Student of the Month should be and works hard to follow the Tiger Code each day to Be Kind, Be Safe, and Be a Learner!

Way to go, Zoey!  We’re proud of you!


Howard, Zoey
