Shapleigh School eighth grader Olivia Kenney was named the Shapleigh School's Rotary Club of Kittery's Student of the Month for March, it was recently announced. The Rotary's monthly breakfast held at Kittery Estates for March and the remainder of the school year have been cancelled.

Here is some of what Shapleigh staff members said about Olivia:

-She is a kind, caring, and hard-working student and a joy to have in each of our classes. Throughout the year we have all appreciated the contagious enthusiasm that Olivia brings with her to each school day. She is willing to jump into any endeavor with diligence, maturity, and grace. We are so proud of what she has accomplished at Shapleigh School and she will be so missed! - Ms. Ankermann, Mrs. Ayotte, Mrs. Durgin, Mrs. Fifield, Mrs. Janes, Mrs. Lemont, and Ms. Watson

-Olivia was a joy to teach in fourth grade. She worked hard, cared about others and never gave up when challenges arose. She is well-deserving of this award. Congratulations, Olivia! I am so proud of you! - Mrs. Gilpatrick

-I had Olivia in my first year, and it was such a blessing that she was in my class. Her energetic spirit, her creativity, and her constant smile kept me afloat so many days! I love the enthusiasm she showed for all of the projects and tasks that we did in class. I used so many of her work products as examples for students in the following years because of the effort that she always used. One of my favorite memories is that she volunteered to be part of the Explorer's Cafe. This is a skit that she and others from my HR class that year both wrote and acted out as an introduction to the SS unit on Exploration. They performed it 2 years in a row, and the students loved it--it was a huge hit!! Olivia is such a bright, energetic, creative lovely young lady--I will never forget her!!! - Mrs. Bertrand

-I have had the pleasure of having Olivia for 5 years and she has been a pleasure to work with! She admitted to me that PE isn’t her favorite class but she likes me haha! I was surprised by that because she is always such a happy and active participant! I have not seen Olivia upset once in 5 years. She is so deserving of this award and she will be missed. - Mr. Rhames

-Olivia is an outstanding art student! I am always impressed with the level of skill and creativity that she brings to art class. She has a great work ethic and thinks carefully about what she is learning and how best to move forward in her own artwork. Her positive attitude is fantastic and she models that and maturity for her fellow students. On top of all of that, she is simply an awesome person. Congrats to Olivia on this special recognition! She deserves all of it! - Mrs. Sutherland

-Olivia was in my homeroom last year, and she has always impressed me with her maturity and her poise, both personality-wise and in her love of ballet. She did a very interesting demonstration for Strength Day last year about toe shoes - she showed how they are made, how to wear them, and what they enable dancers to do. It was fascinating! She is passionate, caring, motivated and I am sure she will find a lot of success no matter what she wants to do in life. I have been honored to be able to work with her in 7th grade. - Mrs. Sebert

-Olivia comes to class with a smile and a willingness to participate in all activities. She has a fine sense of humor too! - Mrs. Fifield
