Her teacher, Mrs. Hoffman, says: “Nora is a sweet and kind student. She is new to Gladys Jung Elementary School and has fit in nicely with all of the fifth graders. She goes out of her way to help others and is willing to play with those who look like they need a friend. She has been a welcome addition to our class and school.
