The Middle School Warrior of the Week for January 17, 2020 is Leah Fischer '25. Teachers have been impressed with Leah's growth as a student in so many areas. Leah has learned maturity and patience with herself and with others, enabling her to be a successful student and an empathetic friend. Lately, Leah has become a true upstander for her peers, like cleaning up messes in the Whitfield Dining Room that aren’t hers and caring about students around her, often putting their needs ahead of her own. She is always kind and aware of others’ feelings. She understands the importance of listening to everyone’s opinions and encourages others to share, such as in seminar discussions and collaborative situations. In Spanish class, Leah pushes herself outside of her comfort zone on a daily basis, challenging herself to ask questions in Spanish instead of resorting to English. She uses perseverance and scholarship in all of her classes, always asking for clarification when necessary and taking the time to make sure she has given every task her careful attention.
