Reese is a 5th grader at West Salem Elementary. She plays basketball, volleyball, and soccer. She’s in her first year of Club ball and they just earned their third 1st place finish of the season. She does great in school and has recently been acknowledged by 2 teachers and the guidance counselor for standing up for a fellow student who was getting bullied.
Below is an excerpt from the email we received from her teacher:
I am so happy to share some things that I have noticed from Reese in school. Reese has been exceptionally responsible during class and with her homework. The main reason that I am emailing you today is because of a situation in the 5th grade that Reese handled with incredible maturity, support, and compassion. One of the girls in fifth grade has been getting picked on daily, making school a negative environment for her. Along with several other students, Reese has been openly standing up against these bullies. This act of standing up for a peer has been noticed by other fifth grade teachers, special education staff, support staff, and our administration. As a fifth grader standing up to your peers is not the easiest thing to do, but some students can do this with ease. By standing up for what she believes in, Reese shows incredible maturity and leadership! It makes me proud to have such mature, compassionate, and strong leaders in my class and I'm excited to see them carry these qualities as they go on to middle school.
