Affton Strong Student of the Month | April 2015

This school year we will once again 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 April is:

Nathan Rancilio – Affton Early Childhood

Nathan is a preschooler at Affton Early Childhood and is proud to be Affton Strong! “Nathan always comes to school with a smile on his face and a positive attitude ready to learn. He shows that he is Affton Strong by following our rules in the classroom and school-wide. When Nathan is with his peers, he is eager to share personal stories, help them in the classroom, and lead by example,” says Sarah Heap, 3- and 4-year-old teacher at Affton Early Childhood. “He is also a great supporter for things that are going on at our school like bringing in caps for our bench recycling program, participating in our school spirit days, and donating items needed for our classroom projects and parties. Nathan has and will continue to show that he is Affton Strong!”

Parents: Kayla Kirkpatrick and Nick Rancilio

What do you like best about Affton Early Childhood? I like playing on the playground.

What is your favorite thing to do at school? I like to play and I like centers in our classroom.

What is something you’ve learned lately? Trying to write down words, but it’s confusing with all the up down up down of writing letters.

What do you want to be when you grow up? I want to be a hockey player, because I want to play with (T.J.) Oshie and (David) Backes.

If you could meet anyone famous, who would you want to meet? (T.J.) Oshie and (David) Backes because I like their costumes. And they’re really good hockey players.
