Great things are happening in Albany's
Pieterse, sixth grade
Pine Hills Elementary School
It’s no accident that Pine Hills Elementary
School sixth-grader Luyanda Pieterse is photographed in front of a
sign that says “Leadership Lane.”
Luyanda is a natural leader and uses
his excellent listening skills to be a true friend to everyone.
Although he is quiet young man, he eloquently gets his point across on
matters of great importance. He is a trusted friend to his classmates.
A highly focused scholar, he enjoys science
and technology. In fact, Luyanda is one of the main designers of the
student-created and -managed website at Pine Hills Elementary School.
He also was a finalist last year in the city-wide Joseph Henry Science
Fair and is a member of the school's Library-Media Club.
Luyanda plays trombone in the school band and
the All-City Band. He received an outstanding score -- the top ranking
-- at last year's New York State School Music Association festival.
He takes every opportunity to contribute to
the school community. That’s why Pine Hills Elementary School is proud to
recognize Luyanda Pieterse as an exceptional student for 2016-17.
