Here’s what the school had to say about seventh grader Chloe:

“She has been doing a great job all year. Chloe exhibits excellent character and is always extremely polite to all of her peers and the teachers. Chloe is easy to get along with. She is soft-spoken, friendly and comes to school with a smile on her face.

“She is a model student who works to achieve her goals. Chloe demonstrates willingness to go above and beyond what is expected of her. She is kind to other students, respectful to staff, and very organized. She enjoys being busy and involved in many aspects of school. Chloe loves gymnastics, dancing, cheer and playing her violin. She is a well-rounded person and is a person we like and need at Grand County Middle School. Congratulations Chloe!”

Said Chloe: “I like to make videos and do photography. I just got my back handspring done in gymnastics. I used to do salsa dancing. My favorite place is Florida and I went to Yellowstone with my entire class in fifth grade. I have had all straight “As” in seventh grade.

Chloe’s advice: “Do your homework every night and listen to the teacher in class.”
