There are quite a few amazing people in Wethersfield and they have accomplished great things to improve the lives of other people in Wethersfield. Students can also be heroes by making other student’s day better.
Antonio, a 4th grader from Charles Wright Elementary School, has been a hero to many of his classmates. He likes helping them out to try and understand a concept better.
Antonio has helped classmates follow the rules of school. He said why he helps them, “First off, even with the pandemic, life has affected me. Sometimes helping people can help me help myself.”
Why Antonio feels happy helping his classmates is because he said, “It gives me warmth in my heart.” He always asks how people are feeling and tries to help them get better if they are down.
Antonio also does activities for the class to help everyone come together. He likes to play “Among Us” and he said, “Among Us has gotten very glitchy, but I am a big gamer. Our class really likes ‘Among Us,’ so I made each person as an ‘Among Us’ character to make everyone happy.”
Antonio’s teacher Mrs. Antonelli said this about the impact her student, “Antonio brings positive energy to our class. He is always looking for the joy in situations to share with everyone.” It is always nice to have someone looking for the positive in every situation so it can boost up the energy in the room.
It’s awesome that someone that young understands that people always need someone to help them get through the day. There needs to be more people like Antonio to help people get through a tough day.
