(l-r) Pals Robert Bettis and Alex Penner, both age 9 in 4th grade, with Alexis Conover, 5th grader at Frazier Park School, in front of new classrooms.
Alexis Conover made these comments at the ribbon-cutting ceremony for Frazier Park School’s new classrooms on Saturday, Oct. 29.
The teachers who work at this school are amazing! They are nice, very helpful and always plan fun things for the class. They are caring and attentive. They love to talk to the students and show an interest in each one.
Our teachers show how much they care about the students and their grades by always trying to give second chances and by letting us do extra credit. They teach us in a variety of creative ways such as using crafts, personal white boards, relay races, and teaching us outside of the classroom.
I feel that I’ve had the best teachers to guide me through learning about myself and the world around me.
The students at this school are also very kind. You can always make friends fast even if you are a new student.
My fellow students try to include other kids in the things that they do on and off the playground. They are also determined to do their school work which helps a lot. They even are quick to provide care and comfort if someone is hurt.
I love the beautiful flowers that are starting to bloom inside the gates. In addition to the new construction, these make our school look even more gorgeous. The gates that you came through are there to keep us safe.
The new buildings are very pretty and there are more bathrooms this year. The new kindergarten classrooms have special sized sinks, tables, and chairs that are helpful to the younger students. Also, every third and fourth grade classroom has a Smart board. The Smart boards are helpful to the teachers and students. It’s like a giant computer screen in your classroom. It’s very easy for the class to see and the teachers can pull up pictures, videos and tests. They can even save math problems, just in case the students need a review the next day.
Finally, I like that every month our school focuses on an important character trait. At the end of each month, two students from each class are chosen as class examples of the monthly trait and are awarded a certificate of achievement, an eraser and a restaurant gift certificate.
This month our focus is on the word “respect.” The meaning of that word is to value the teachers and students around you.
So with the wonderful caring teachers, great students, and the new physical improvements, I conclude that… Frazier Park School really is a good place to grow!
