I wanted to let you know that Marques was nominated by his peers for a Courage Award (and I agree). He has worked extremely hard in the classroom (and outside of it) in regards to math but also in making good choices/being a Leader ! He has been a great role model this year- I enjoy having him ! 02-27-12 "
