Grand Oaks PTO would like to Congratulate this month's Stand Out award winner Charles Phillips.


Charles was chosen for his outstanding school spirit, and kindness he shares with the whole school. If you have had the pleasure of meeting Charles you will find that he leaves you better than when he found you. He has an endearing personality that brings a smile to everyone he meets and he shows so much enthusiasm for life. His zealous personality is so contagious that you can't help but want to go bring that same happiness to others. Charles makes everyone feel like a somebody, that they matter, that they are valued and they are special. Some days everyone just needs a positive ray of sunshine and Charles brings that to the whole Grand Oaks school and community. What an example he is to each one of us to go out and care for others. If you see Charles in the hallway tell him Congratulations on his award, I'm sure he will be overjoyed to see you!
