The kid who pitches in

Teachers, counselors, coaches–they all love the kid who pitches in.

The kid who pitches in…

  1. …puts your hand up regularly to ask or answer a question in class.
  2. …makes traditional flan for the Spanish Club's fundraiser.
  3. …says "Thank you" after meetings with your counselor.
  4. …offers to help clean up after homecoming.
  5. …helps clear the table after dinner.
  6. …does community service because you want to do it.

  9. …grabs as many soccer balls as you can and puts them in the bag when your coach calls an end to practice.
  10. …picks up the soda can on campus and throws it away.
  11. …sticks up for the social outcast at school.
