STUDENT OF THE MONTH
Helena Elizabeth LeCompte
By Pam Teel
Seven-year-old Helena Elizabeth LeCompte attends the Roosevelt Public School in the heart of Roosevelt. She is in Mrs. Eppingers first grade class. Her favorite subject is writing. Helena loves to read the Magic Tree House books and Animal Fairy Series.
Her favorite thing that happened this year in school was when her class got to hatch baby chicks right in their classroom.
Helena loves cooking and wants to be a chef when she grows up. She loves to help out with dinner and loves to look at the cookbooks for new recipes. Her favorite shows on TV are Cupcake Wars and Chopped Junior. One day she would love to go on Chopped Junior and compete.
Helena’s favorite food to eat is salad. She brings it to school almost every day. When she was four her mom asked her what she wanted to take for lunch, and Helena told her to mix chickpeas, cheddar cheese, and peppers, and then add Italian dressing. It turned out delicious, and it has since become a lunch option for her.
Helena’s favorite place to travel to is Florida because of Disney and the warm weather. The family loves to go during the wintertime here. Her family camps at Fort Wilderness in Florida, and Helena really loves traveling through all the different states to get there. She especially loves Savanna, Georgia.
Helena has two sisters, Marianna, who is 8 years old, and Kendall, who is four years old. She also has a little brother Blake, who is 22 months old. Helena loves going to the park and the beach and on hikes through their woods. She also loves going to her grandpa’s pool and swimming all day.
Helena loves to practice gymnastics and is an avid reader. She also takes piano lessons and is getting better and better at it. (I can attest to that because I am the one who gives her and her sister piano lessons).
If Helena had but one wish besides really wanting a kitten, she would want to feed all the people in the world who were hungry. Helena feels that no one should be hungry and those who have should help the ones who don’t have.
Keep up with your reading and writing Helena. Stay the sweet caring person that you are! I have no doubt that one day you will be helping a lot of people in need because of your kind heart!
