He is thoughtful, a willing participant in class activities, and a pleasure to have in the classroom and to work with in general. Griffin is always positive and ready to say hello with a smile. When he is faced with challenges, he tackles them head on and finds a solution or way to conquer them. As school is important to Griffin, he comes to school every day prepared to learn. When he is absent, he is proactive in getting the assignments he missed and completing them in a timely manner.
