Woerner Elementary School
St. Louis Public School District
Rawaah was in her classroom when the school nurse came in. The nurse explained that she had noticed a personal possession of hers was missing from her desk and it was not in her office. While the item had little monetary value it had immense sentimental value. The nurse had responded to each classroom and shared with the students about the missing item and why it was important to her to get the item back. Rawaah raised her hand and shared that she saw the missing item in the hands of a classmate and that the classmate put the item in her book bag. The classroom teacher was able to check the book bag and find the nurse’s missing item. So today we honor Rawaah AL-Busairi for doing the right thing!
Thanks to her bravery and compassion, Rawaah helped return a valuable item that was taken. Ms. Sherron Walker and Ms. Sue DiPiano who nominated her stated, “Rawaah did the right thing in telling what she knew and saw. Rawaah was so brave in speaking up and not worrying about what others would say. She knew she was doing the right thing to help the nurse and we are so proud!” Wow what a great citizen you are, Rawaah! We are so proud of you!
