Star student for May 7

Fourth-grader Dashell Bristol likes school. She likes it even more now that she goes to school in Dinosaur.

The Vernal resident hasn’t been there the entire year and already her teacher, Dana Forbes, can’t say enough about how she’s improved, particularly in reading.

Beyond academics, Forbes said Bristol is a star student.

“She’s always got a great attitude for any work no matter how challenging, she’ll give it all she’s got,” he said. “She’s very helpful and volunteers to do anything.

Bristol’s favorite thing about school is the field trips. She likes to draw, ride her bike and hang out with her friends.

She has one step-brother, one step-sister and a brother.

Although Bristol seems shy, she evidently holds her own with her siblings. They fight a lot, she said, and she wins some and loses some.
