Kindergarten

School:

Pixley Elementary School, Pixley Union School District

Pillar: Respect

"One particular time Jose and another student bumped into each other. Jose not only said he was sorry and helped the student get up and pick up their things, but also said, 'I should have paid attention to where I was going.' I can always count on Jose to be on task, participate, and to be an excellent role model for the rest of the class."
