Character Tree

 

Ms. Crawford’s first grade class had a visiting student and Addisyn Rhodes showed such compassion by really taking this little girl under her wing. She invited her to play with her, helped her out at lunch by showing her where to go and what to do, and was just all around a compassionate friend to her, welcoming her into our community. Thank you, Addisyn!
Haley Browne, another first grader, demonstrates her responsible nature on a daily basis. She always does what is asked of her, she puts forth great effort on every task, she is always willing to go the extra mile and will rise to any challenge. She leads herself and others through her actions and example day in and day out. Way to go, Haley!
Another student in our third grade made a positive difference for one of our recent visitors. Jenna Seidenfrau demonstrated spirit, empathy and compassion  this week when a student from a different country came to spend the day with our community. Jenna happily welcomed her into our classroom and stayed with her all day to help make sure she felt comfortable and had an enjoyable school day.  Thank you, Jenna!

Fifth Grader Charlie Ramquist recently demonstrated his courage as he shared his unique struggle with a rare disease called Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) with his entire fifth grade.  He was able to increase awareness about the disease while also discussing ways to support research and find a cure.  Charlie is truly leading self, leading with others, and changing his world by participating in an amazing CLIMB Benefitting CURED where he and his father will climb Mt.Kilimanjaro along with others affected by EoE.  His story was featured on a recent  WRAL story and his classmates all agreed that he is a model of all the Character Tree traits in action and they couldn’t pick just one.  We are all very proud of Charlie!

Thanks to the support and guidance of Mrs. Taylor and Mrs. King, we had some of our fifth grade ravens–Christopher Williams, Carter Brown, Sage Crosby and Charlie Enloe– earn 4th place in Omega Psi Phi’s 12th Annual African-American Quiz Bowl this past Saturday.  Competing with more than 10 other Lower School teams, with only a few weeks to study, snow days galore and while on winter break, these fabulous four managed to study and master 109+ Black History facts. They demonstrated a lot of dedication!  It was a STUPENDOUS showing for Ravenscroft’s first time participating!
