Dayrin’s favorite school subject is reading. She has especially enjoyed our recent research project where she studied fossils, took notes and wrote a research-based narrative. Her story is about a dinosaur fossil that comes to life, scaring all around it. Dayrin plans to use her skills learned at school to eventually become a nurse. She would really enjoy helping others get well when they are sick.
When she is not at school, Dayrin loves to play outside with her sister Litzy. They often ride around their neighborhood on their scooters. She also regularly plays with her best friend Marys (Mu rees). They prefer to ride on their bikes when they get together. Marys says that Dayrin is always friendly. When playing together, Dayrin always invites both her and Marys’ sisters to play with them. She doesn’t complain and includes everyone in her plans. When Dayrin plays on the computer, she willingly shares her time with her friend Marys. According to Marys, Dayrin is a kind and faithful friend.
Congratulations, Dayrin, on a job well done this, and every month, of school at Forks Intermediate School.
