McKinley Elementary: Aubrey Elkins
As a 3rd grade team, we honorably select Aubrey Elkins as our Kid of Character. Aubrey perfectly exemplifies many characteristics that make her a true Kid of Character. For example, on a daily basis, Aubrey is always caring, kind, and respectful towards her teachers and peers. In addition, Aubrey also puts forth her best effort on every assignment and task that she is asked to perform. Finally, Aubrey is always willing to push herself to be the best possible scholar that she can be.

We are so proud of Aubrey each and every day! Keep up the great work!

Shawnee Elementary: Connor Huffman
Connor was chosen for the Student of Character for Shawnee because of how responsible and respectful he is. He has shown that he is responsible by bringing his red folder to and from school daily. He continues to complete and turn in his weekly homework. Connor also shows responsibility in the classroom by putting his materials away when cleaning up and helping others in the classroom. Connor is always respectful to his classmates and teachers! He is a great example for the students at Shawnee!

Keep up the great work, Connor!

Tecumseh Elementary: Nathan Premo
Nathan is such a delight to have at our school!! He always has a smile on his face and can be seen regularly setting an excellent example for those around him. Nathan exudes Tecumseh's core beliefs as he is responsible and respectful, helps himself and others solve problems, and is a fantastic learner. This year Nathan rocked a presentation to his 4th grade class about his cochlear implant and hearing aide. He proudly engaged the students with joy and enthusiasm, demonstrating he is much more than his hearing impairment. Nathan shares repeatedly that one of his goals is world peace, and he lives this out every single day. Thank you for being so amazingly Nathan!!
