Jaycie is the "Student of the Week" in the
Alpine School District, the largest
school district in the state!!!
Only 68,000 students!!!
WOOT!!!  WOOT!!!
Here's what the article looked like in the
"All About Alpine" district newsletter.

And for those that can't read the small print (me),
here is the article.
Jaycie Kelly, 11, attends Sage Hills Elementary in
Saratoga Springs and is currently in the sixth grade.
She was chosen to be the Student of the Week because she puts 100% 
into everything she does. A former teacher commented, “Jaycie is 
fantastic! She was one of my best helpers, always willing
to work with others whether it was explaining to another student how to 
complete their work, being a friend for someone in need of a friend,
 or helping to organize the classroom. She was also a hard worker,
she didn’t give up even when the task was challenging and there was a chance
 of failure. She always pushed through.”
Her classmates describe her as friendly, a hard worker,and a great helper.
 Her current teacher agrees and says that Jaycie applies the same dedication
 to her extracurricular activities as she does with her classwork.
She is very involved in her school activities. Jaycie has
sung in the choir for two years, been a wonderland creature in the school play,
 “Alice in Wonderland,” and is currently enjoying her first year on the student
council. She is a very well rounded student.
When Jaycie is not involved with school activities, she
enjoys jazz dancing, drawing, and is planning on play-
ing basketball for her third year. In her downtime she enjoys 
spending time with her family. Jaycie plans on
attending BYU and has her heart set on getting her
degree in elementary education. With all of the characteristics she exemplifies, 
we think she will make an amazing teacher or whatever else she decides to become.

Thanks to my former teammate, Matt Goff, who not only saw it,
but remembered Jaycie's last name.
She attended preschool at Alpine Elementary.
