October 7, 2021

 By: Emily Durliat

Congratulations to our October Senior of the Month, Kendra Tossey! 

What the staff has to say about Kendra:

  •        “Kendra is one of a kind and such a pleasure to have in class! She meets expectations every time and even goes above and beyond. She is a committed student and always gives her best effort. She is completely reliable and participates every day and she makes teaching easy!”
  •     “Not only is Kendra an excellent student, but she also has a positive personality that makes everyone around her smile.  She works diligently on any task (in or out of the classroom) given to her.  She is such a role model to all the students of Arlington.  Congratulations, Kendra!”   
  •    “I have had the pleasure of working with Kendra Tossey in choir since she was in 8th grade.  She has always been a quiet leader and a fantastic example to those around her.  Even though her talents allow her to be in the spotlight, she is not someone who seeks that type of attention.  Kendra is dependable and is a forward thinker.  She can access the situations around her and respond accordingly with positive outcomes.  I appreciate Kendra so much and I know she will have much to offer to the world in the future.” 
  •        “Kendra is a gifted young lady who pushes herself to be the best version of herself. She is kind to those around her and is willing to help wherever she can assist. Kendra will be missed! Congratulations Kendra!”
  • “Kendra is a kind, compassionate, hard-working young lady.  She is a leader both on and off the squad.  She is always willing to help her peers and brings positivity to the Cheer program.  Kendra is going to do great things in Arlington and beyond!”

Let’s get to know Kendra a little better!

1. What is your all-time favorite class you've taken here at Arlington? Why would you recommend upcoming high schoolers to take it?

My all-time favorite class is probably Biology II. Although it was difficult and there was a lot of memorization involved, I had a lot of fun in this class. I enjoyed all of the labs and dissections we did.  

2. How did you get involved in dance?

I was always moving around and grooving to music as a child, so my parents decided to put me in a dance class. Once I started, I couldn’t stop!

3. If you could dance with anyone in the world who would it be and why?

I would like to dance with Chris Evans. He knows how to tap dance and although I’m not the best tap dancer, it would still be a lot of fun to dance with him. 

4. What will you miss the most about Arlington? 

I will definitely miss all of the close friendships and student to teacher relationships here. As well as Mrs. Griffin’s cookies!

5. If you could throw food at anyone what kind of food would it be and who would you throw it at?

I would definitely throw an orange sherbet ice cream cone at Emma Rossman, just because.
