Danny Rios is definitely a Classroom Hero. His classmates describe him as “very smart” because of the classroom achievements he has accomplished. He is also considered “nice, quiet and friendly. As a teacher, it was easy nominating him as a standout student because he makes a strong effort to finish his classroom assignments but also finds the time to share a joke with me at the end of the day. Way to go, Danny! You are a role-model and the kind of student everyone enjoys. — Mr. Fonda, 6th grade teacher

Mariana Isordia makes our campus a better place with her amazing and positive attitude towards learning. During class discussions she adds a lot with her well thought-out answers. Her smile brightens each day. Mariana goes out of the way to

help others on a daily basis. She is patient with all of her classmates and is pleased to see others succeed. What a great girl, destined for success! — Kihm Keith, 4th grade teacher

Liam Beltz is proof that heroes exist among us all, even in a fifth grade classroom. Liam, a 10-year-old living with muscular dystrophy, doesn't let his physical limitations deter him from being the best student, friend and person he can be. At school every day with a smile and a positive attitude, Liam works hard to succeed at all subjects, is effective in his classroom position of “scout” and helps his friends and classmates who may need some extra support. He has taught us the true meaning of compassion, determination and most importantly, friendship. Liam's smile and infectious laugh makes our world a little brighter, and we are fortunate to call him our classmate, our friend, and our classroom hero. — Mrs. Willis, 5th grade teacher
