Eli Apel

Eastridge Elementary
5th Grade
Nominated By: Principal Traci Boothe

Eli is a hard worker and takes pride in his work and learning. The importance of academics and learning is notable every day in his focus as a learner. We see him showing perseverance when things get difficult, asking questions when something is unclear, and showing his thinking. He shows integrity, responsibility and leadership in group work, on the playground, and by being such a positive role model in our Eastridge Community. Eli has gained the respect of his peers by being kind and accepting to all kids. He is helpful to others and students know they can rely on him to be a supportive friend in any situation. How he makes others feel about themselves says a lot about who Eli is. Keep being YOU, because that's what makes you a shining example of INSPIRING OTHERS!
