Her energetic, enthusiastic talk filled with childhood stories, vibrant artwork and readings of her books left a definite and lasting impression on all who were privileged to hear her. She left her audiences knowing they CAN live out their dreams, as she did. That they ARE all awesome, as she is....ANYTHING is possible if you continue to dream and work hard.
ABDOELSAMEA KAHEAL IS THE APRIL DISTRICT STUDENT OF THE MONTH
The Miamisburg City School District April Student of the Month is Miamisburg Middle School seventh grader Abdoelsamea (Abdoel) Kaheal. Abdoel was chosen by his counselor Bonita Belton for best exhibiting April's feature asset # 26 - Caring: Young Person Places High Value on Helping Other People. Mrs. Belton explains why Abdoel was chosen. "Abdoel has shown without hesitation his deep concern for others and takes time daily to help fellow students, his parents, younger siblings, and others he comes in to contact with.
His family moved to the United States from North Africa 4 years ago so their father could work on his PhD at the University of Dayton. Aboel is the second son with 3 younger brothers and 1 younger sister. When the family first arrived in the U.S. they spoke limited English. Abdoel, as well as his father and siblings have been immersed in English through their studies. Learning a second language came somewhat easy to Abdoel so he works with his mother and younger siblings to help them better understand speaking, reading, and writing in English. In the evening he will often help his mother with cooking and cleaning the kitchen so he can teach her English while they spend time working together.
Abdoel takes his gift of speaking two languages to the Mosque as well where he works with younger children, and adults, who speak/read English but no Arabic. He shared that the Koran is written in Arabic so he helps those who can not read Arabic to understand what the words say. Abdoel said that he always tries to put himself in the other person’s shoes and treat them the way that he would want to be treated. He said it bothers him when he sees older children treating younger children as if they are not as important so he works and plays with them so they know they are valued.
At school Abdoel demonstrates his caring attitude and high value for others throughout the school day. He treats all of his teachers and fellow students with respect and kindness. In his Advanced Math class and in Science he helps his classmates when they do not understand the material and need additional help. His peers feel safe in asking him for assistance due to his pleasant attitude and willingness to help everyone.
After school Abdoel is a member of the MMS Track and Field Team. He shared that he loves to
run and enjoys working with the other kids on the team. After long days at school and track practice, he goes home and continues his passion serving as tutor for his mother and younger siblings. It comes very natural for Abdoel to make others feel valued; helping others makes him the unique young man that he is.
Abdoelsamea Kaheal, Seventh Grader on Team Eight at Miamisburg Middle School, is a natural candidate for Miamisburg District Student of the Month. The definition of Asset #26 “Caring” was designed with young people like Abdoel in mind. His daily life is a living testimony that he places high value on helping others. Those that know him well know that he is the perfect nominee to represent our district for this month’s award."
Congratulations Abdoel! Miamisburg City School District is proud of all of our building Students of the Month. To view the other building representatives, please scroll to the bottom of this page.
