Student of the Month – Auden Pryce

My name is Auden Michael Pryce. I am 8 years old, and in 2nd grade at Antelope Hills Elementary in Murrieta, CA. My favorite subject is Reading. I LOVE to play soccer! I started taking lessons with Yiyi in January 2015. Other favorite activities include building with LEGOs, playing games with my sister (Gabby), and playing piano.
Teacher Comment: Auden is a model student. At a young age, he is already very conscientious in completing his homework assignments and always comes to his lessons well prepared. He particularly enjoys improvising on the piano. He submitted an original music composition for the National PTA Reflections Creative Arts Competition. His composition was chosen for first place in the Primary Level from all Murrieta School District elementary schools. His composition will now move on to be considered at the regional level which includes all of Riverside County. This is such a tremendous accomplishment! I am so excited for him. Congratulations, Auden!
