Roguewood Elementary’s Skylar Berlin: an Example in Excellence

Skylar Berlin

Skylar Berlin

Respectful, responsible student sensitive toward others

Skylar Berlin is known at Roguewood Elementary as a confident and resilient student who has a wonderful sense of humor. She is the daughter of Kathy and Joe Berlin.

Her teachers describe Skylar as a respectful, responsible and caring student who is honest and sensitive to the feelings of others. She is very competitive, yet demonstrates good sportsmanship when she doesn’t win. She is extremely focused and on task when it comes to just about anything-athletics, hobbies, studies and her desire to do her best.

Skylar has an iron will and a calm determination to accomplish goals. She is also caring and concerned about all creatures, from her pets-a cat and dog-to the smallest bugs. She has been known to rescue insects, worms and other creatures by moving them from harm’s way.

A personal confidence and strong desire to do the right thing, Skylar is focused, organized and completes any project she starts. She is mature beyond her years and many skills come to her very naturally. Her determination is a strength that leads her to prepare well for competitive events such as Jump Rope for Heart, which she won two years in a row by diligent practice. She won the hustle award at basketball camp in summer of 2008 and first place in gymnastics with the best cartwheel and round-off.

Skylar excels in all she attempts and she is very active, participating in basketball, softball, dance and running in the Roguewood mileage club. She began water-skiing and was a natural. Other hobbies include rollerblading, bocce ball, four-square and swimming.

Skylar’s determination toward success, plus a caring sensitivity to others and natural tender heart make her an Example in Excellence at Roguewood Elementary.
