East Hanover Elementary School fifth-grader did the right thing, helped out classmates

Posted

A fifth-grader at East Hanover Elementary School was recognized in April for Doing the Right Thing by Hummelstown Police and Lower Dauphin Communities That Care.

Sara Reichelderfer was nominated by teacher Amy Sell for being encouraging and helping other students in some classroom games.

“She showed compassion for her friends,” Sell said. “She made a choice to ‘do the right thing’ and encourage others.’”

Sara was recognized with a $25 gift card, a Do The Right Thing T-shirt and certificate, and pizza coupons. 

Lower Dauphin Middle School eighth-grader Zachary McIntire was also nominated in April and received a certificate.

The Do the Right Thing program is modeled after a successful national program. Now in its 10th year, the program recognizes students in the Lower Dauphin community who have distinguished themselves through their accomplishments, attitude or outstanding efforts.

School staff members and police officers typically nominate students whose positive actions come to their attention, but any adult older than age 18 can nominate a child. A volunteer committee reviews the student nominations on a monthly basis and selects a winner for each month.
