Student of the Month – Rebecca Council – Kindergarten

The Hollister Early Childhood Center is excited to present Rebecca Council from Miss Sproul’s kindergarten class as this month's Student of the Month. Rebecca is always displaying the traits of a Top Tiger, which she already is. She always works hard and does her best. She does not give up when things get hard. She always treats others with respect and this, along with her caring and compassionate nature, makes her a student of the month. Rebecca is one of the most caring students that Miss Sproul has ever had in her many years of teaching. She is always trying to help other students when they encounter hurdles, whether they be academic or behavioral. She will talk to a student that is having a rough day in a sweet, quiet voice to try to help them have a better day. Miss Sproul has seen her kindness work on a student this year in particular and change his whole mood and his whole day. Her kindness has made the difference for this individual and many others. As you see, Rebecca works hard to follow the Tiger Code of Being King, Being Safe, and Being a Learner.

Way to go, Rebecca! We're proud of you!

Council, Rebecca
