â€śAnne-Marie is an extremely dedicated and focused student,â€ť teacher Carrie McMillen said. â€śShe is very concerned about her school work and grades. She always has a book in her hand, and I never have to correct her behavior.â€ť
Anne-Marie is a straight-A student who names math and science as her favorite subjects.
â€śI like learning about food webs and good chains in science,â€ť she said. â€śI like math because it is more challenging than other subjects.â€ť
But what Anne-Marie likes most about school is â€śmy nice teachers, all my good friends, and I like to learn,â€ť she said.
Anne-Marieâ€™s dedication to her school work often results in her helping her classmates with their work.
â€śShe is responsible and always willing to help her classmates in any way,â€ť McMillen said. â€śShe is very good at helping her classmates with school work and does a great job encouraging others to read by setting such a good example.â€ť

â€śAnne-Maries is well-respected by her peers as a student, athlete and friend,â€ť McMillen said. â€śAt recess, both the girls and the boys want her on their sports teams... She plays on a challenge soccer team that requires her to be involved in many practices and tournaments.â€ť
Anne-Marie enjoys soccer so much she hopes to play in college and beyond, but she also has dreams to be a writer when she grows up if soccer doesnâ€™t pan out for her.
