Appreciation Letter

Mr. Point Du Jour is one of the security officers in Thomas Edison. Along with doing his job, Mr. Point Du Jour interacts with the students of Edison and faculty members. He is very inspirational and motivating! He is always there to help and give advice and positive feedback that makes one want to keep pushing and thrive for more. Mr. Point Du Jour goes out of his way to make sure Edison students are safe and feel as if they’re at home. I wrote an appreciation letter for Mr. Point Du Jour because he helped me tremendously with my view on life and my problems. He always noticed when I was having a bad day. It is hard to have people like him nowadays, who actually care and will help. I really appreciated all he did for me, making me feel like there was always someone there for me and guiding me to make the right decisions. I wrote the appreciation letter for all his kind deeds because I didn’t want them to go by unnoticed and taken for granted. I got 150 signatures with the help of Edison students to support my letter. I submitted the letter to Mr. Ojeda and he said it was very kind of me to do this. Mr. Ojeda later wrote a letter to Mr. Point Du Jour that Mr. Point Du Jour brought into my 4th period class. He wanted me to come read it to the whole class. In the letter, Mr. Ojeda quoted some of my words and expressed his feelings towards Mr. Point Du Jour for all he does. After I was done reading the letter, I looked at Mr. Point Du Jour who was in tears and smiling jubilantly. His reaction enlightened me, seeing him that happy and on the verge of tears made me feel a way that I can’t describe! It meant everything to me knowing that I was able to impact his life and make him happy, since he always did that for me. That day I realized that your actions and voice can make a change and affect someone now matter your age and how big or small the change may be. I didn’t expect anything from writing the letter other than Mr. Point Du Jour’s valuable reaction. However, a few days later, a girl who is a senior came into my fourth period shop class and handed something to Dr. Savitzky. She said “It’s for Sukhpreet, for a letter she wrote.” Dr. Savitzky handed me an ACE wristband and smiled. I never thought I would’ve gotten an ACE band for the letter I wrote, but kindness sure does find a way back to you! This was a memorable experience for me and I’m sure for Mr. Point Du Jour as well because it impacted both of us greatly. Once again, I would like to thank Mr. Point Du Jour for all he does and for always being there for everyone, along with ACE for noticing different things people do in Edison.

Confidence

I received my ACE band by Mr. Ojeda. I was going through a heartbreak recently and I started to break down during class. Mr. Ojeda gave me a talk about my situation, which really helped me with my issue. I then decided to write him a thank you letter telling them that he impacted me with his kind words and led me to rethink who I was. He then called me down and gave me the ACE band because my letter also impacted him and made him feel great; he realized that his words of encouragement actually impacted the life of one of his students.

Natural Courtesy

I received my band from one of my teachers. I was given the band the day after I did my act of kindness. On Thursday, the day after the Hamilton Trip I participated in, my teacher in the beginning of class said she had an announcement. She said that a student’s kindness has finally gotten her attention . She said that she decided to give me the band for being constantly courteous and for being a nice person in general. She said that I am always being polite and showing little acts of kindness on a daily basis. What made her finally decide to give me the ACE band was what I did on the train ride to Hamilton. While my fellow classmates and I were on a crowded train ride on our way to the city, we arrived to a stop where a significant amount of people got up to leave the train. Since I was standing, people expected me to take the seat that opened up next to me. I did not, however. Almost instinctively, i began to offer the open seat to the other girls and teachers on the train. I’ve always felt that I should give a seat to others before I sit myself, so I didn’t really think about it at the time. My teacher said that those acts of kindness really show a persons true colors especially since I didn’t even think twice about what I was doing. She said I deserved the band for being a consistently nice person doing random acts of kindness on a daily basis.

I Love to Help!

I really enjoy helping Ms. Claire Perez and Ms. Laura Esses every day during service. Sometimes I take mail from the teacher to send home to parents. Other times I do my school work. I always ask if they need any help with anything. I really enjoy helping other people.

Found cellphone

I had math during 7th period. When I enter the classroom I am usually the first to enter. I went to my seat and when I happened to look on the floor two seats ahead of me, I saw a Samsung Galaxy phone! I took it to one of the teachers and they gave me the ACE band.

NLMB

During my 3rd and 4th period shop class we were assigned a task to complete the day before. I finished my project the day before and noticed some friends still behind on it. Since they did not know what to do and I had some spare time I helped them complete the project before class was over. My teacher noticed and gave me the wristband.

Dropped Wallet

I was walking out of school one Friday. Of course everyone was hyper and jumping, all excited for the weekend. I was walking behind a group of students going to down the hill towards the bus stop and as the boy was jumping and laughing at something his wallet fell out of his back pocket. The boy had headphones in his ears so when i screamed to let him know his wallet dropped, he didn’t look back. So i ran up and tapped his shoulder and returned his wallet, and I received the greatest award in the universe, an ACE Band.

Common sense

While in English class we were packing during announcements. My friend dropped her books. The the obvious thing to do was to pick them up rather than watch her struggle and have to walk around to the other side of the row.
