What do you like best about Mesnier Primary School? I like specials best because I can run in the gym and paint in the art room.
What is your favorite subject? Science, because I like to discover things.
What is something you’ve learned lately? Three addend addition, like
1 + 2 + 3 = 6.
Who is your favorite teacher that you’ve ever had? My first grade teacher, Mrs. Vester, because she let me learn lots of new things like really hard spelling words.
What do you want to be when you grow up? A vet, because I like taking care of little animals like little puppies and kittens.

If you could meet someone famous, who would you want to meet? Taylor Swift, because I like her songs.
What has been your proudest moment? When I finally learned how to do the yellow monkey bars at recess. I can make it all the way across!
What do you want people to know about Affton Schools? We’re all good students because we listen to our teachers.
