Kind.  This word was consistently used by all of the teachers at Nine Mile Falls Elementary to describe the fourth grader who earned the May Solvencia Award.  Mrs. Lori Pippenger presented the young lady to the School Board Directors and shared that this student is the essence of the word, having been kind to everyone throughout her years at the school.  She is always willing to help her peers, views the cup as half full, not half empty, starts each day with a huge smile, has empathy beyond her years, and is a great problem solver.  This fourth grader also likes to organize, which her teachers all appreciate!
