This warm, sunny weather we’ve been seeing has Katlyn Beavers thinking “lake season.”
Beavers, 11, is a Council Bluffs native and a fifth-grader at St. Albert Elementary School. She transferred from the Lewis Central Community School District during her third-grade year. As her final year of elementary school comes to a close, Beavers looked back at her time as a young Sainte with fondness. She said she’s made lots of new friends over the past few years and her teachers have guided her with kindness and concern. She said she’s in good hands at St. Albert.
“They’re kind and they’re sweet,” she said. “They really care about people.”
Like many students her age, Beavers said she is nervous about taking the step up to middle school.
“I’m afraid I’m going to get detention on the first day,” she said with a laugh.
Beavers said it will be a totally new experience for her, but said that her older brother, freshman Andrew, is there to give her advice. She plays volleyball and soccer, and she said she wants to continue playing both sports into high school, and maybe beyond that.
As it gets warmer and closer to graduation, Beavers said she is ready for some fun in the sun, as well as the water. She said she loves spending time with her family at Lake Manawa State Park.
There will be plenty of time for the lake as summer draws nearer.
