Pikeland Community School in Pittsfield has named their students of the month for January.
The students from each pod and and what their nominating staff members said about each one:
Clara Fitzmaurice. “This young lady is such a wonderful student to have in class. She is so very kind to everyone, I never see her without a smile on her face, and she just loves doing good for others. I can’t think of a better citizen who follows the cool tools than this one.Also, she is so gentle and sweet to everyone around her. She is smart and driven. She loves coming to school and is rocking 3rd grade! This young lady is as sweet as they come! She has the sweetest smile, is a rule follower through and through, just as perfect a kid as there ever could be. This little girl is amazing. She has a smile that lights up PCS every time she’s here, she is so sweet and polite, and would never dream of doing anything she isn’t supposed to. All this and she is only in 3rd grade! I gladly nominate this student because she is as close to perfect as possible.”
Karla Martinez-Fernandez. “This young lady has been a Godsend to PCS – what makes her most admirable is that she came here speaking very limited English and in just 8 weeks time has mastered it well enough to carry on conversations, but also helps those who are non-English speaking as well. She has blossomed into a wonderful student and has become so confident and less afraid here. She has overcome what appears to be insurmountable odds, and is shining bright. Another nominating staff member said: I have worked one on one with Karla, who is brand new to this school, and she stepped up to help me out with communicating to our new Spanish kids. She was very in her element with helping the new students feel welcomed and at ease. I know it has to be very hard to be so new and not of our language and culture to just be able to talk to me and translate in Spanish. Karla was very quiet and her peers recognized this, but after their conversing in both languages I feel she is more recognizable as it is easier to confront and make new friendships.”
