Olympic View fifth-grader is positive presence in the classroom

This month’s Scholar of the Month is fifth-grader Forsina Rabauliman.

The Federal Way Mirror Scholar of the Month is Forsina Rabauliman, a fifth grader from Olympic View Middle School.

She was nominated by principal Chris McCrummen.

A new student to the school last October, Forsina was immediately a positive presence in the classroom.

“I’m so happy I received this award. I achieved something special,” she said.

She’s always respectful and responsible, and is quick to help out her classmates with any problems they have.

“Having a positive attitude helps you achieve your goals,” she said. “I think by me having a positive attitude, it helps my fellow students too because they will be inspired to have a positive attitude and do the right thing.”

Because of her positive attitude, her fellow classmates listen to her and follow her example in the classroom.

Forsina is always willing to improve her learning, and she also takes time to help her classmates understand difficult concepts, McCrummen said. She is even thinking about a career in education so she can continue to help students.

“I think I may want to be a teacher when I grow up,” she said. “My teacher here is so helpful.”

She demonstrates a high level of confidence in her character, and has a strong sense of self that has helped her make many friends in the classroom, McCrummen said.

Since entering the school, Forsina has become a thriving student.

“It’s such a friendly, great environment here.” Forsina said. “My teachers have been so nice and so helpful especially with my school work.”

She is also thankful for the friends she’s made.

“If I have trouble finding my way around, the friends that I made here help me to get around,” she said.

Along with her positive attitude and helpfulness in the classroom, Forsina was nominated because she maintains an above 3.0 GPA, has perfect attendance, and displays productive behaviors in school.
