What teachers say:
“Aiyanah goes out of her way to greet me before school and also as she sees me throughout the day. She always has a smile on her face and kind words to share with those around her. She has a positive attitude and brightens up every room she is in!”
“Aiyanah Buckahan is responsible and has a great work ethic. Even if she misses a day of school she will do the work from home.”
“She is respectful and kind and always willing to stop and give her grandma a squeeze when she is in the building.”
