SSE Student honored by School Board

student honoredCongratulations to Cheniel Rojos on their nomination for a GEMS award presented by Superintendent Theresa Axford during the monthly school board meetings. GEMS signifies Great Educational Moments for Students.
Cheniel was nominated by his teacher, Ms. Angi White. Please read the nomination below.
Cheniel Rojas is a third grade student in Ms. White’s class at Stanley Switlik Elementary School. Cheniel is always a friendly, kind person, but he became a true model of what kindness really is when his class received a new student. This student was having a hard time adjusting, but Cheniel stepped up and continually invited him to join in everything that he did in the classroom, recess, and even at home. Even though the student was resistant, Cheniel never gave up, and our new student is smiling and enjoying his new school. Cheniel is a perfect example of why Switlik Dolphins always say “we swim together.” For being an example of kindness and acceptance, we are proud to award him with this GEM.
