Grace always gives her best effort.

He is maintaining a 100% in class while being attentive, hard-working, curious, and helpful. Not only has he asked some great questions, but he helps his peers to understand some of the topics we have been talking about as well.  Thank you for being an active participant and helpful for your classmates! Keep up the great work!
