MIDDLETOWN, R.I. (FEBRUARY 9, 2024) – In each of the schools across Middletown, there are students doing excellent, noteworthy things. As part of a feature from the town, a different student will be spotlighted for their efforts to make Middletown a special place to live, work and play. 

Name: Izzy Walsh

School: Forest Avenue School

Grade: Third

Parent(s)/Guardian(s): Danielle & Peter Walsh

Accomplishment(s): Being a driven, dedicated student who brings out the best in her classmates.

Quotable: “Make sure you’re using common sense.”

Dream Jobs: “To be a teacher. I love teaching kids and my brother, but he never listens. I’d also like to be a Farmer. I love growing things and it's a surprise when the seeds grow. I can't wait to see what the seeds look like and how they taste.”

Favorite Meal: “Nana’s soup with carrots, pasta and spinach.”

Go To Snack: Pickles

Person I Look Up To: “My Dad. He’s strong, he's really good at farming, fishing, building and putting out fires. He's an awesome Dad.”

Person I’d Like To Meet: “Taylor Swift. She’s a good singer and I like to sing too.”

Top Show Or Movie: “I love Bluey. At the end of the video, it shows a life lesson and I like that part a lot!”

Best Local Hangout: “My home. I learn a lot and I go home and talk to Mom and Dad about my day. It's fun and I learn a lot.”

Music With The Most: “Imagine Dragons. They have such good songs."

Recommended Reading: “Diary Of A Whimpy Kid”

Best Subject In School: “Math, because when I first was learning about fractions, I didn't understand what they were and how they worked. Now, I know all about fractions and how to use them.”

Teacher/Staff Member I’d Like To Thank: “Mrs. (Toni) Cawley. I would like to thank her because she teaches us in ways that we understand and she helps us stay healthy by cleaning up our tables and washing our hands after we blow our noses. We have an awesome jar and when we fill it up we get to celebrate teamwork. Mrs. Cawley is always full of crazy surprises.”

Comment From Teacher/Staff Member: “Izzy is a dedicated student who has an excitement for learning that is contagious. When it comes to her classmates, she looks to include others and can be counted on to help lead her group to success. She also has a smile that can light up the room,” Third Grade Teacher Toni Cawley said.
