Crestwood Elementary’s School Ayden Kraai, an Example in Excellence

This All-Star has entrepreneurial spirit

Ayden Kraai, 10, is the son of Tim and Christine Kraai and brother to Avery, 8, and Ellyanna, 4.

Crestwood teachers and staff describe Ayden as a kindhearted student who is trustworthy and puts others before himself. “At school, if a student is treated poorly, Ayden will support that student in any way possible,” they report.

Ayden is an excellent math student. Although he would never boast about how easily these skills come to him, he is willing to assist others who do not find math as easy. In all respects, Ayden is a determined student who is not easily discouraged or dissuaded. He wears a perpetual smile and is an eager learner. Always quick to lend a helping hand in any situation, Ayden is a compassionate person who takes others’ feelings into consideration. He is not afraid to stick up for someone or something if he feels it’s the right thing to do.

Baseball is one of Ayden’s favorite activities and he was picked for the All-Star team for the Wolverine Baseball League for spring season in 2010. Ayden also has a mind for business as he manages a vending machine at a local Rockford merchant’s office. Hobbies include shooting BB guns, archery, and building things. He attends Frontline Church in Grand Rapids and has been a Cub Scout for two years.
