Kiaya was our STAR student this week!  She was born on March 4, 2011 “right across the street” at Johnson Memorial.  Kiaya was excited that her mom got to come and read to our class during Dr. Seuss week, the day before her birthday.  Kiaya’s mom’s birthday is the 5th of March so she received an extra special gift for her birthday 6 years ago! 🙂  Kiaya loves her family very much!  She enjoys playing basketball with her big brother, Ethan (4th grade) and likes to play dolls with her little sister, Grace (Lion Cub).  Kiaya likes to watch TV with her mom and play Minecraft with her dad.  Kiaya also enjoys going ice fishing with Jason.  She likes to eat the fish they catch.  Her favorite place to go is the Children’s Museum.  Kiaya likes racing Grace down the big slide, especially since she always wins.  Both girls are very brave, not only because they go fast down the big slide, but because they held a baby alligator and showed no signs of fear.  They were actually smiling!  Kiaya’s favorite sport is soccer, her favorite color is purple and her favorite book is Mr. Brown Can Moo!  Can You?  Kiaya has 2 dogs, Arrow and Lilly.  She said her dogs like to play together and they bark A LOT.   Thanks for sharing, Kiaya!
