Modesto City Schools: Character Education Awards

Teacher Alethea Bateman shared: 
From the first day school, Brianna has exhibited respect. She not only shows respect, she “earns it” like our character trait saying goes. She is polite to her teammates, her teacher and other adults on campus. She always makes sure that she in on-task. Brianna is a shining example of what a respectful student and future adult looks and acts like.
