For the month of May the Fine Arts Team at Erickson would like to recommend Sara Chichevalieva for the Above and Beyond Award. Although Sara was a new student this school year, she has proven to be a great example for the rest of her 5th grade class. Sara has stood out for exceeding the SOAR expectations (sowing Safety, Ownership, Appreciation and Respect) in Art, Music, PE, Library and STEAM classes. Sara is always actively listening and engaged in classroom discussions and activities. She is always eager to learn and comes up with thoughtful and creative ideas on assignments. In Mrs. Clay's art classroom she is always willing to help prepare art materials, help other students during class, and make sure materials are cleaned up and well taken care of at the end of each class.  Sara is a role model in each of the Fine Arts’ classrooms!  She is truly a bright light at Erickson and we know she is going to bring this same positive energy to Westfield next year.
