An athlete, a volunteer, a nurse, and a classroom leader are just a few ways Jack Johnson is a natural “Kid With Class”. He quietly begins every day, before the other kids arrive handing out breakfast bins to each class. While doing so, he greets all staff with a good morning and a warm “how are you?” After he has participated in Grade Eight class adding his own brand of humor and insight to each lesson, he gives up most recesses to answer phones and help with administrative work in the office. While in the office, the wipes tears of those who are not feeling well and supports students until their parents can be contacted. When Jack is not giving up his free time, he is actively participating in all sports. Whether it is basketball, floor hockey, volleyball, or baseball, he always leads by example with his confident attitude and happy disposition. Jack Johnson starts each day the same way he ends it- caring for our community and the people around him. This makes him an obvious choice to become a “Kid With Class”.
