This school year we will be recognizing one Affton student each month for the things that make them Affton Strong, both in and out of school. Our Affton Strong Student of the Month for December is:
Gavyn Stanley – Affton Early Childhood
Gavyn is a preschool student at Affton Early Childhood and is proud to be Affton Strong! Says his teacher, Erin Summers, “When we first met Gavyn last February, he was a very shy and reserved child. He was quiet and didn’t participate much. Over the past year, Gavyn grew into an independent and charming student! He has become a great friend to all his classmates and enjoys laughing and playing with them. He loves his teachers and therapists and participates happily in every activity. His hard work and determination illustrate why he is our shining star. He exemplifies Affton Strong!”
Parents: John and Amanda Stanley
Sibling(s): Nevin (a Kindergartner at Mesnier Primary), Skyler, and Gideon.
