Xekiel is a very active 4 year old. When he’s not practicing martial arts, he’s either snowboarding or skateboarding. Even though he’s only been skateboarding for six months, he already knows how to lean into half pipes! The most difficult thing he’s accomplished in his life is a 9-mile bike ride with no training wheels.

In his down time, Zekiel is a great reader. His favorite book is Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! By Mo Willems; a book about a Pigeon who steps up as a volunteer to drive the bus while the regular bus driver takes a break from his route.

Xekiel’s great at racing games—and they’re his favorite! During relay races in class, Xekiel is always trying his hardest and continuously getting better. His favorite move in class is Thai knees because he loves to yell “TANG!” while he’s doing them.

Through hard work and training, Xekiel sets a great example every day for other students. His positive attitude and can-do attitude earned him his spot as Student of the Month.
