Third Grade, Somerset Oaks Academy
Rapids Waterpark Trip Winner
Kaylani and Emeri exemplify kindness, compassion, and empathy. Recently, a fellow student approached them stating that she wanted to hurt herself and die. Kaylani and Emeri tried to talk the student out of it and then reported to their teacher so that the student could receive the help she needed. Since then, they have made it a point to befriend the student and include her in their group to help her learn to love herself. Emeri recently lost her grandmother to cancer but despite dealing with such a tragedy, has continued to focus on school and helping others. Both Kaylani and Emeri are amazing students who know what to do when they see a peer in need.
