the Powerful Parent Blog want to congratulate:
Aaron M. who is a 10 year old Black Belt in the Junior Star program at Yuen’s in Canada.
According to his instructor, Mr. Perry Bateson,
“This month, since our POWerful word is CITIZENSHIP, we are encouraging our students to be good citizens in our community. As a school we fund raise every August for Schools supplies for students who are less fortunate than others. Arron decided to collect bottles to recycle. He took them in and raised $20.00, Aaron then went to Staples and spent all his earned money on school supplies. He brought it into the school and put it in the School supply box and was about to leave looking for no recognition of his efforts. Way to go Aaron.
And Kari J:
Mr. Bateson went on to inform us that:
“One hour later Kari J. a 9 year Black Belt in the Junior Star program did the exact same thing as Aaron. Kari came into the school with two full bags of school supplies and put them in the school supply box. Kari gathered up $50.00 worth of bottles put them in the back of her moms truck took them done the bottle depot cashed them in and went shopping. Keri is an awesome Citizen at 9. We are very proud of these two students and I know by the end of the month this list will be very long.”
WONDERFUL, Mr. Bateson, Kari and Aaron! You are Powerful Kids!
