Connor Arthur-Martorano is 6, and a student in Ms. Guthrie’s Kindergarten class. Principal Lane Morris said Connor is a good kid who’s made a lot of progress. “He’s just, wise beyond his years, as in, things that are going on in the classroom, and how he’s handling different scenarios,” Morris said. “(He’s) just a joy, he’s just contagious. It’s been a blessing to have him as part of our family here.”
