Nickname: Apple Sauce
Birthday: September 6
Grade: Collège 2
Appoloste or “Apple Sauce” is as sweet as his nickname. His joy is infectious; he loves to crack jokes and make others smile—it’s no surprise his favorite movie is The Mask! To make the friendly funny man smile in return, offer him a slice of pizza, since that’s his favorite food. Appoloste’s interests in math and playing basketball match his ambitions to be an accountant or a basketball player when he grows up. He was not only one of the runner-ups in the 2016 Spelling Bee, but also the Connect 4 Champion of the Mission’s boys! Appoloste’s role model is Michael Jackson and loves the moonwalk. His only request is that the Mission play more Michael Jackson.
Appoloste survived the earthquake while on our grounds, being pulled out the window by several of the older boys. Despite the trauma, he was an upbeat and playful child who has become a leader among the other boys. He values one on one quiet time with the teachers and staff and always offers to help if it means spending quality time with them.
