Grade 1, Miss. Schultz
Cameron arrives to school everyday ready to learn. He comes in and greets his peers and adults with a big smile on his face. In the beginning of the year, Cameron focused on making good choices to help him build a strong work ethic. Now, it’s evident that he has the foundation needed to continue to soar in first grade. In reading and math, Cameron can be found persevering through challenging words or tricky story problems. All of Cameron’s teachers comment on how much he has already grown this year! As a friend, he always goes out of his way to make sure that all of his friends feel included. He is quick to give them compliments and cheer them on! A few of Cameron’s favorites at Willard include Writer’s Workshop where he gets to illustrate his pieces of writing and PE class, where he gets to play Dr. Dodge Ball. In his free time, Cameron loves to play tag with his dad! We are excited to see him continue to succeed and grow as a learner!
