Cora Jones

Morley Elementary 
5th Grade
Nominated By: Principal Stephanie Drake

Cora is a hardworking student and always goes above and beyond in anything she does. Early on in the school year she started a debate club with the kids in our class. She organizes the groups each week and helps the kids come up with topics and helps them research. Cora also encouraged the kids in the class to enter a magazine cover contest for the kid magazine, Teen Week. She brings this magazine to school to share with the class and during December printed the necessary papers for the kids and explained the cover contest and encouraged the kids to participate. Almost every kid completed a cover and mailed it in. Cora also encourages the kids to run laps during our morning mask break, she creates the tracking chart each month and helps the kids track their laps. Cora is kind hearted and treats everyone with respect and goes out of her way to make sure everyone is included and is always willing to help a student or help me with classroom tasks. I can't say enough about Cora and what she adds to our classroom.
