Ducor Elementary School, Ducor Union School District

Pillar: Responsibility

School staff says, "Danya is one amazing student. I see the hard work she puts into her studies. She is always in class being a leader and helping others stay on task. There was one day we did not get to an assignment and she sent me an email that she finished it that night and turned the assignment in, even though I did not tell students they had to do it. She took the initiative to finish her work, going above and beyond what was asked of her. She is a responsible leader beyond her years; the sky's the limit for her!"
