Affton Strong Student of the Month | September 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 September is:

Jessica Jones – Mesnier Primary School

Jessica is a second-grader at Mesnier Primary School and is proud to be Affton Strong! “Without being asked to help, Jessica does so willingly and happily. She is a friend to everyone, so kind,” says her second-grade teacher, Christine Rethwisch. “She is a hard worker and a great example to others.”

Parent: Seirra Dunn

Sibling: Skylar (4th grade)

What do you like best about Mesnier Primary School? I get to learn anything I didn’t know yet.

What is your favorite subject? Math, because it’s fun and I’m learning at the same time. And writing because it’s just like a calm moment where you can sit and write about things you did.

What is something you’ve learned lately? I learned about onomatopoeia where you sound out sounds and put them in writing.

Who is your favorite teacher you’ve ever had? Mrs. Hennessy because she’s nice and she taught me a lot of different things.

What do you want to be when you grow up? A teacher, because from school it looks fun, plus I get to read them books.

What do you like to do for extracurricular activities or outside of school? At home, I play with my sister. We dance, do ballet, and play teacher.

If you could meet anyone famous, who would you want to meet? Mr. Obama, because he served our country. I would ask him if I can come to his house and take a tour.

What has been your proudest moment? Spending time with my mom and my family, because it’s fun and it’s relaxing.

What do you want people to know about Affton Schools? You can learn so much here and all the teachers are really nice. Kids are nice too, you’ll make so many friends. Even on the first day, I met three new friends.
