Student of the Week



Student of the Week

October 16-20, 2017


       This week’s student of the week is Dharma Reyes! Dharma is a very interesting 6th grader, and some interesting things about her are, she loves watermelons. In fact, she is going to be a watermelon for Halloween! Dharma desires pizza because it has tomato sauce, and she loves tomato sauce. Dharma’s favorite hobbies are dance, gymnastics, and tennis and when she grows up, she wants to be a firefighter to conquer her fear of fire, or an interior designer because she is a very creative person and she thinks this job will really help her become more artistic. Something that is really neat about her is that she was home schooled since 5th grade, but when she started 6th grade, she was able to make friends easily because of her unique characteristics. Over all, Dharma is enjoyable person to be around.
