Zane Andrade is the AAA September-October Student of Excellence! Zane is a talented 6th grade student and a driving force at AAA. Kinetically gifted, Zane is the first to volunteer to help in class, in the garden, on the playground and on the football field. This summer when the garden was boasting 6 ft. weeds, Zane came with motorized tools and took them all down. In his 6th grade online class, Mrs. Helgevold singled Zane out as someone she can always count on to help and participate. On the flag football field Zane has great hands and his competitive nature always makes games fun!
