Evamere Elementary School kindergarteners Khalid Jadallah and Emily Jabbour were chosen for recognition by the "Kids Making a Difference" program, which is sponsored by The Royster Group and hosted by the Hudson Parent Teacher Organization. Students were picked for their significant accomplishments or achievements in and out of school and for helping others and contributing to their school and community in a positive manner.
Khalid Jadallah is in Mrs. Marshall's class at Evamere. Mrs. Marshall nominated Khalid because he is "one of the most inspiring, hard-working, and thoughtful students I have had the pleasure to meet." Khalid motivates other students to do their best just as he always does his best. He always comes to school with a smile on his face, ready to learn something new. Khalid shares his good attitude in other ways. He routinely visits children who are hospitalized to cheer them up and to encourage them to be strong during their treatment. In fact, he has donated many of his toys to those who are hospitalized at Children's Hospital of Akron. Khalid enjoys soccer and baseball and riding bikes with his friends. He collects trains and has fun building with Legos. As Khalid gets older he wants to continue helping those who are sick or hurt. He believes that "kids can make a difference in their communities by giving to those who are less fortunate and helping those in need."
Emily Jabbour is a kindergartener in Mrs. Feskanin's class. Emily greets every visitor to the classroom and is a role model for using good manners. She is a caring and considerate student who is always sensitive to the needs of others. Emily says, "To be a good friend is to be helpful," Emily said. She showed what she meant by escorting her friend to the nurse and making sure he was OK. Emily is always enthusiastic about doing anything with friends and family, and she particularly enjoys going to church to see her friends. In the future, Emily would love to be an artist and make beautiful paintings to share with her family. Emily said kids can make a difference by thinking of ways to help each other. "Emily displays kindness in room G-1 every day and makes it a great place to learn and grow," Mrs. Feskanin said.
The Hudson PTO congratulates these outstanding kids who are making a real difference in their school and community. The PTO thanks The Royster Group for their sponsorship of this program and for their generous donation each month. The proceeds of their donation will assist the children of the Hudson City Schools.
