Congratulations to Samantha Palya.  She's 11 years old, attends Trinity Catholic Academy, and she's this week's Good Kid of the Week.  Her mom says whenever she has to work on the weekend, Samantha gets up early to make her breakfast. She also takes in extra snacks to school to give to classmates who don't have a snack for the day.

Samantha often helps her classmates when they don't understand something. She plays basketball, soccer, cross country, track and dance all while keeping up her grades.

Congratulations, Samantha.
