Berlin Bravo Student Name: London Mason
London transitioned to us from Alabama. She made friends quickly because of her kind and caring disposition. She has worked diligently to make progress in all academic areas. London’s family has been instrumental in her success by actively supporting her educational goals at home. Her parents read with her each night, practice sight words, play extra math games, and complete multiple school projects. This has proven to help London out tremendously and has propelled her confidence. She has a positive attitude towards school and is an active participant in her learning process. She is a great example of a student who demonstrates persistence on a daily basis. She always tries her very best and encourages her classmates to do the same. She is certainly deserving of a Berlin Bravo award due to her hard work, her character, and her ability to make others around her happy. She is always smiling and has been an excellent role model for her peers. We are very thankful London is now part of our Willard community.
