Kindergarten, Xander Nunemacher: "I have been trying hard to stay in my seat and raise my hand."
Grade 1, Madison Miller: "I was chosen as Student of the Month because I listened to Mrs. Boyle the first time she gave us directions."
Grade 2, Joshua Shelton: "I was chosen as Student of the Month because I don't brag if I am done my work before another classmate and I keep my hands to myself."
Grade 3, Rilan Gombert: "I was chosen as Student of the Month because I try my best to not speak while my teacher is speaking. I also try everyday to be on my best behavior."
Grade 4, Ava Kosciolek: "I congratulated classmates when they were successful. I am patient and I don't give up easily. I learn from my mistakes and move on."
Grade 5, Allison Slakoper: "I try to be positive and not complain. If I win, I don't brag, and if I lose, I don't get angry."
Grade 6, Olivia Weaver: "I was chosen as Student of the Month because I work hard and I always show self-control in class."
Grade 7, Michael McLaughlin: "I am patient with my classmates even when it is difficult."
