Congratulations to 3rd grader Gabriel Rubio, Character Without Question recipient from Spring Branch Elementary!
Every year, SBISD honors students district-wide who reflect a depth of character and a caring for human beings. Students are selected for demonstrating an enduring commitment to any or all of the following character traits: honesty/integrity, responsibility/dependability, respect, perseverance/effort, courage, caring/kindness, and citizenship/civic virtue.
Gabriel’s counselor, Patricia Romano, wrote, “Gabriel Rubio is a student with high self-esteem. Gabriel is one of our 3rd grade students and has demonstrated how to be a leader and role model to all of our SBE Bears. Gabriel is respectful with his peers and staff, as well as respectful in his community. Gabriel is an honest student, as he says "I heard lying is bad and doesn't solve anything". Gabriel wants to ensure that he is honest with those he interacts with.
While in Second Grade, Gabriel was a key speaker at the SBISD State of the Schools event. At the event, Gabriel spoke about the benefits of the Reading Buddy Program and informed those in attendance of how the program has helped him grow as a reader. Gabriel continues to be a role model for our SBE Bears by demonstrating that with perseverance, respect, honesty, empathy and compassion, goals that seem impossible to reach, are reachable by working hard and persevering.” Gabriel was selected for his commitment to honesty and integrity, perseverance, and respect.
