Today I attended a luncheon with my daughter at the school district offices. She was awarded the Outstanding Student of the Year Award for her Elementary School. I was so proud of her!
Below is a letter from her teacher that was read to the audience when she was presented with her award.
"Emma is an outstanding girl. She is one of the kindest people you will meet and is always seen including kids who don't have anyone else to play with. She tries her absolute hardest at any task she is given, and usually goes above and beyond surprising her teachers with her extra effort. She has a wonderful combination of intelligence mixed with creativity and curiosity.
But what really sets Emma apart, is her dedications to issues that are beyond the thoughts of most 6th grade students. She is wholly dedicated to the environment and the misuse of our natural resources. She has started her own business that sells school supplies made of mostly recycled materials, and has even donated a portion of her profits to the school.
Emma is a wonderful person and will make a fantastic citizen of our country. No one who knows Emma will be surprised to see her succeed at whatever she sets her sights on. We are proud to have her as a student in our school!"
