Chandler Lognion

“There are many students deserving of the title classroom hero in fifth grade. However, one student stands out because of the qualities he has committed to exude both in and out of the classroom. This student has learned to remain positive and help maintain others positive when things get tough. He exhibits leadership qualities and uses these qualities to get others to perform better. Not only is he respectful and responsible with his peers and adults on campus, he has also learned to put himself in other people's shoes whereas things used to be all about him. I chose Chandler because he believes in himself and has realized that in order to achieve his full potential he has to be a humble, honest, and hard working student.” — Angel Mendoza

Adia Nelson

“A classroom hero has to have unique abilities and powers, such as being honest to themselves and others. They must also be willing to helps others in need and expect nothing in return but a smile. He or she must possess the charisma to help their peers in any given situation. This young individual perhaps over exceeds these expectations. Her name is Adia Nelson. Adia is the sweetest student I have ever met. She starts her day by greeting everyone by name. In the classroom she strives to help others in need by asking them questions or helping them in whatever they may need. She is their friend, counselor, and even a sister to most students in my class. She is looked upon by her peers as a young friend who is willing to walk that extra step with them.” — Mrs. Carranza

Sebastian Longoria

“A hero is someone people look up to. In my class, there is someone we definitely look up to. This student is always in a good mood and makes everyone around him smile.   When he is not here, he is greatly missed.  He has charisma, yet maintains a humble attitude.  He has the best sense of humor in class and makes our day enjoyable without causing unnecessary interruptions.  He has been working very diligently to improve in academics even when it gets tough.  The thing that makes him my hero is the way he lights up when we are reading in class.  He is engrossed in the story and makes the best predictions.  Perhaps the most important quality is his ability to work in a team.  His personality is a great asset to any group.  That’s why I can say that Sebastian Longoria is my classroom hero.” — Maria Inguanzo
