Character of the Week: Drew Colwell

Character of the Week: Drew Colwell “I would like to nominate Drew Colwell for Character of the Week. It was time for lunch, and the class was leaving the classroom. A student was using a hole-puncher on one of her papers. She dropped the hole-puncher and hundreds of little circles of paper dropped all over the floor. Drew immediately went over to help this student pick up all the paper pieces that had scattered around the room. He could have simply left the classroom and walked on to lunch with his friends, but instead chose to stay behind and help a classmate. Drew always comes to class with a smile and greets me daily in the halls. But on this particular day, Drew demonstrated extraordinary kindness!” Submitted on August 19, 2008 By MAJ Karen Grimes Grade 8 Social Studies
