The whole team at 100.5 Fresh Radio, Darling Insurance, Lighthouse Private Wealth and PJ’s Diner would like to congratulate Taigen Overvelde for being our monthly Kid with Class for April!
Here is the nomination for Taigen.
Every time I hear the ad “Kid With Class” Taigen comes to mind. He has also come to the minds of other teachers at R.F. Downey. Taigen is a grade 6 student who I had the pleasure of teaching in grade 3. Taigen is a kind, caring student who is always the first to volunteer to help anyone. He takes on many leadership roles at home, at school and in the community. At school, Taigen is the school safety patrol captain. Regardless of the weather he is always there for his responsibility and if other students are away, with a smiling face he steps in to cover for them. Taigen attended the Safety Patrol camp this summer with the Peterborough Police. He takes this job and responsibility very seriously. He has also been involved with the school REST team where he helps younger students solve problems at recess. Taigen has also been a part of school teams such as Cross Country, Volleyball and Floor Hockey. Taigen also volunteers during his lunch in the Grade 1 class, helping students open lunch items, ensuring they follow classroom expectations and keeping them entertained. Taigen is a hard working, dedicated student when it comes to his school work. He is eager to learn and try new things. He isn’t afraid to take risks. Taigen always does the right thing at school and is a wonderful role model for students. Outside of school, Taigen is responsible for a paper route. He is also playing on two hockey teams, the Grizzly Fire Minor Pee Wee house league team and the Minor Pee Wee Roster select. He demonstrates sportsmanship and cheers on his teammates. Taigen is also a wonderful big brother to Ryder. Taigen is not only liked, but respected by his peers and the teachers at R.F. Downey. He is definitely a leader within our school community. Taigen is always willing to step up and help when needed, and never seeks or requires recognition. Taigen is a well-rounded student, with a kind heart, great sense of humour and a friendly smile. He is always thinking of others. It is for all these reasons and many more that I know I have forgotten, that I believe Taigen is a true representation of a “Kid With Class”.
For being the 100.5 Fresh Radio Kid With Class for April, Taigen receives:
*A $100 R.E.S.P from Lighthouse Private Wealth,
*A $100 Lansdowne Place gift card from Darling Insurance,
*A class lunch courtesy of PJ’S Diner.
Taigen is also entered in the year-end Grand Prize for a $1,000 R.E.S.P from Lighthouse Private Wealth.
