Shout Out to Allison

Way to Go, Allison!

Even though she is brand new at Westview Middle School, Allison won the Student of the Month Award today. We are so proud of her!

Just a few kids win this award each month. Allison's teachers nominated her because she is an excellent and conscientious student, because she works hard, she's kind to everyone and she showed herself to be a real leader on the volleyball court.

The school celebrated these great students this morning with a fancy breakfast. The principals brought the students to the front of the room and shared a bit about each of the kids. Allison's photo and the information about her will be on display in the school entry for the next month.

After the not-so-great year at a different school last year, it is so wonderful to see Allison's confidence returning. And isn't it just like God: but for the tough time last year, the positive and fantastic experience she is enjoying now wouldn't be so sweet. He is a redeemer! And He teaches His lessons to all of us....even our kids.
