What teachers say:
“Charles is the ideal student. Charles is always on task, has all of his materials, is ready to go, and always preparing ahead to the next project. Charles is willing to help others if needed and enjoys being competitive in the classroom. He is polite, kind, hardworking, funny, energetic (in a good way), and seems to really enjoy being at school. We appreciate having Charles in class and can’t wait to see what the rest of the school year brings for him.”
