5th Grade Students, Dean Petersen Elementary School

Our Principal Mrs. Yarberry is always kind to everybody. So that makes everybody want to be kind to each other. I love coming to school each day to see her and see our teachers.

Our teacher, Miss Green, told us that what we learn in fifth grade is going to help us when we grow up. I like having goals because it keeps me motivated to do what I want to do; I would like to be a lawyer when I grow up and go to Harvard!

Miss Yarberry is a great principal. She’s one of the best principals I’ve ever had. Since she came to this school, it’s been a huge success. She helps out all the students. She gets things done the right way. She’s just an amazing principal. I’ve been to many different schools but everything is really good in this school.

Ashley

When you come to school in the morning, everyone says “Hi, welcome.” Your teacher greets you. It always helps me if I’m not feeling good, because it shows me that the teacher does care about every single one of us. It makes me want to stay and never leave this place.  I imagine my future being great.

Deontae

Our teachers really help us and really push us. They help us achieve and they tell us that we can keep getting higher grades, every time. That we can go up and up. I really like that. If you don’t get pushed and then you stay at the same level, you’re just gonna stay in your comfort zone. You have to get pushed out of your comfort zone.   I love class because of my teacher… She loves us and we love her back. We’re a joyful class. And the whole school is great.  Last year, I didn’t even feel safe. This year, I feel safe.
