Marshalltown Area Catholic School first grade teacher Mary Burns has noticed a smiling face and helping hand in her classroom this year.
Those belong to 7-year-old Cale Hungerford, one of her students.
"He's a very polite young man, and he likes to help others," Burns said. "He's always aware of what others are doing and if they need help."
