This week’s student of the week is Colin Shankle.  Colin was nominated by Ms. Rich and Ms. Ketteringham because Colin goes out of his way to hold the door open for students in the mornings when he gets off the bus. He is one of maybe 2 students who stops to help a peer in one of the most simple ways. He is always kind, respectful, and a bright spot in our morning!  As this week’s Student of the Week, Colin will receive a coupon for one free admission ticket to an Oakdale High School event. Way to go Colin!
