Lea was having a great time playing on the playground at school with friends when the whistle blew and it was time to line up. Lea noticed that another student did not line up and remained outside. Lea, being super-responsible, told the teacher that the student, who has special needs, was outside in the playhouse on the “big playground”. The student was located and returned to the classroom safely, all because of Lea!
So today we honor Lea Hayes for doing the right thing. Thanks to her being responsible and caring, a fellow student is safe. Marsha Numi who nominated her stated, “Lea was so responsible, she informed the teacher, who quickly brought the young girl inside. I am so very proud of her for helping make a fellow student, who is nonverbal, safe.” Great job, Lea! We are so proud of you.
