Nichols, a third-grader in Sarah Henderson’s class, is the daughter of Laura Kruta and Douglas Nichols. The BEACON Enrichment Staff said they chose Nichols as the Student of the Month because of her “enthusiasm for everything she does with BEACON.”
“She is observant, interesting, funny, and engages students and staff equally well – and we love her smile,” staff members wrote.
Nichols participates in a number of different BEACON clubs including Under the Sea, Bugs, Animals, and Amazing Bodies.
When asked what she likes about BEACON, Nichols said, “Everything we do!” She said she loves the different types of activities and the people.
As her award for being named the BEACON Student of the Month, Nichols won a golden ticket to Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Lovers’ Fling.
