Students of the Month

Each month, our teachers submit recommendations for students of the month.  Two students are selected each month, and are presented with this award on our morning announcements during the final week of the month.  Along with receiving this acknowledgement, students receive a certificate of achievement, and two prizes, one to benefit them inside of school and one to benefit them outside of school.  We could not be more proud of our Students of the Month!




Rosalyn was nominated by Ms. Gibbs.  Rosalyn shows great character and has a great personality. During the first and second week of school we had a few students that joined our class, most of which were new area and did not know anyone. Rosalyn went out of her way to welcome new students into the classroom. She not only greeted them but asked them to come sit with her. It is hard for a student to enter a new school from somewhere else and not know anyone, I could tell by the time the new student left the room she had given them more confidence in themselves and in their new school. It is inspiring to see a student make that kind of difference in someone else's day. Rosalyn not only made a difference in the new student's day, she also gave a great example to her peers. The other students in the room saw what an impact actions can make.  


Sam was nominated by Ms. Noel.  Sam is an all around great kiddo. He is kind to other students, especially when they need help. He puts forth that extra effort with his assignments, even if it is new or difficult. He is not afraid to ask questions to make sure he understands what needs to be done. He always has a smile on his face which is contagious to the others around him.  Sam was more than willing to help when another student who was having a difficult time with the rules while playing kickball. He helped without hesitation and did not make the other student uncomfortable. It was the right thing to do and it was done effortlessly.  



John was nominated by Ms. Smith.  John is always smiling and ready to learn, and he always has a positive attitude.  He is so motivated that he is able to get others geared up and participating in class!


Natalie was nominated by Ms. Syfert.  Natalie enjoys participating in class, and she stays focused regardless of what is going on in class around her.  She participates in class, volunteering with answers and always working on the task at hand.  Natalie is a good role model for others around her!



August was nominated by Ms. Martin.  August consistently works hard and does the right thing in class. He doesn't settle for just understanding material, he works to master it. He also helps out classmates when they are struggling. He is polite and respectful and all around a great kid and a pleasure to have in class.  He serves as a positive role model, a student other students can aspire to be like. 


Lindsay was nominated by Mr. Cambruzzi.  Lindsay deserves to be student of the month for her outstanding job in her fitness testing. In addition she works extremely hard and is always on task. In simplest form she is extremely talented , hard working, and a daily leader by example.  I believe the best leaders are those who lead daily with their actions and that is what Lindsay does EVERYDAY!
