Two Locust Valley elementary school students have gone above and beyond in exhibiting kindness to their classmates during recess, and are being recognized in the October Superintendent Spotlight, a new monthly recognition in which Superintendent of Schools Kenneth E. Graham, Ed.D. highlights students for their acts of kindness.

Locust Valley Intermediate School fourth-grader Kosly Ronquillo has gone out of his way to help a new classmate feel welcome. Not only does he help with Spanish translation, but he also makes sure that his new friend is included at recess when the students play together. Kosly was new to the school last year and has quickly embodied the school philosophy of being a welcoming and inclusive community.

Ann MacArthur Primary School first grader Brooks Fox has been recognized by multiple staff members for his ongoing efforts to be inclusive. Brooks makes sure that his classmates are included during recess, exhibiting characteristics of a bucket filler and proving that he understands that kindness is cool.

“I am proud to recognize Kosly and Brooks for exemplifying the traits that represent Locust Valley,” Dr. Graham said. “These young men are role models for their peers and we are proud to call them Falcons.”
