Happy Memorial Day
Loyal, Hard Working, Athletic, and Focused are just a few words that describe Jonathan Alvarado. Jonathan has been in our school district since preschool, and is one of the hardest working students our teachers have ever taught. Despite some difficult struggles throughout his school career, the work ethic instilled by his parents has translated into growth and progress for Jonathan that has resulted in honor roll status. He once told a teacher that he works hard in school because his parents want him to have a better life. They hold Jonathan to a high standard because education is very important to them. Jonathan works hard so that he doesn't disappoint them or himself.
It is rare to find a young person who has to work so hard in school and yet doesn't become discouraged or ever give up. He embraces his challenges with a confidence that he will figure it out, and if he doesn’t succeed in something, he accepts the responsibility for his role and then comes back and tries again.
OF THE YEAR!
