Aiden Gordon is the February Mayor-picked Student of the Month at Helen M. Knight Elementary. Aiden is a fifth-grade student in Mr. Lewis’ class. He is the son of Kenny and Jillayne Gordon.

School officials said that Aiden is an active member of the class and gets involved with class activities to help provide for a positive learning environment.

“He is often the first one with his hand raised and is eager to learn or try new things,” they said. “Aiden has a good understanding of fifth-grade curriculum and is willing to use his extra time to peer-tutor other students that are challenged or struggling (especially in math). We appreciate Aiden’s dedication to learning and his help in assisting others succeed.”
