“Walter is an excellent student, consistently doing his best in his education. Walter is consistently polite and helpful. He goes out of the way to be of use. He has a positive attitude all of the time. He approaches others (kids and adults) in a way that charms them into courtesy in return. Walter has been a great help to the school nurse. He has fetched lunch for one of our diabetics and brought it to her in the office every day since the first week of school. He is awesome! He is nice to everyone ... he doesn’t care what color you are or if you are smart or dumb, or nice or mean, he is just nice to everyone. It was suggested by some that our motto should be, “Millswood School ... Be like Walter!”
“Marissa volunteers outside the classroom and wants the best for her school. She has started a Community Service Club at Millswood, aimed at getting kids to take pride i n their school and surroundings, and helping out others at the same time. She is dedicated to her academics and always does her personal best.”
“According to her teachers, there aren’t enough words to describe Emily. She is kind, courteous, cooperative, quick to help others, pays attention and dedicated to her studies. She is always on time and thoughtful to those around her, adults and fellow students alike.”
