Cypress Elementary School, Tulare City School District

Pillar: Respect

Cypress Elementary School staff says, "Mahtab was honored at the Tulare City School District's Spring Character Counts! dinner. Mahtab is a shining example of what respect means. He always pays attention and his eyes, ears, heart and mind are tuned in. Mahtab begins his work right away and always tries his personal best. He stops to help anyone who needs it, always with a kind voice. He waits his turn and does not interrupt others. During parent conferences, he shows respect to his mother in how he listens to what she shares."
