SAISD - Students of the Month for March
The Pre-K Student of the Month for March was Jeremiah Singleton. Jeremiah is 3 years old, he will not be 4 until July. His teacher, Mrs. Delois Stripling, said, "The first thing that made me take notice of this young man was his “self confidence”. He wasn’t loud or rambunctious, just very attentive to what was being taught and those things going on around him in his new environment. It was if he was making mental notes about this place called “school” and me, his new authority figure. He learned all 11 shapes, parts of a book, can count to 25, knows 25 of 26 uppercase letters, and he likes to sing too. Jeremiah likes to test the limits from time to time to see if the boundary lines have moved or if the punishment is still the same every time someone crosses that line. Over the months as we sized each other up, a beautiful trust emerged between us. He’s learned the advantages of following the rules and makes a conscious effort to make good choices. Jeremiah is a good listener most of the time. He is learning to settle conflicts with his words instead of fist! He has very good manners, is kind to his friends, and he really does like to give and receive hugs." Jeremiah is the son of Bernesha Singleton.
