April Student of the Month

Erich McManis deserves to be Student of the Month especially when it comes to the areas of respect, determination, and empathy. Every morning, Erich comes to school and greets me and his peers with a contagious grin. His constant enthusiasm radiates out of him and makes our classroom environment truly a fun place to be. Erich is quick to help a friend in need, whether it be including a classmate in a game, borrowing them a pencil, or helping pick up spilt crayons. Erich is quick to say please and thank you in the classroom. When a classmate of Erich’s recently moved away, he made it a point to let her know that he thought she was very nice and he would miss her very much. Erich has also showed tremendous determination this year. He came into kindergarten only knowing the names of a handful of letters. With his positive attitude, determination, hard work, and help from Mrs. Erickson, Mrs. Lantagne, and Mrs. Adamson, Erich can now name all his letters, their sounds, recognize kindergarten sight words, and read independently. I could not be more proud of Erich this year and look forward to watching him continue to grow.

March Student of the Month

I am nominating Jaxson Reitz for student of the month.  Jaxson shows respect toward others, responsibility for himself and his school, and has an eagerness to learn.  Jaxson comes to school and greets me with a “good morning” and a smile every day.  He is eager to share with me about things going on at home or a new fact he learned about snakes.  Jaxson always wants to learn more and is very curious about the world.  He is always asking questions!  Jaxson is very willing to learn new things and gets excited when he learns something new or when I show him something new.  Jaxson has become an independent worker and I can look over at Jaxson and know he is producing quality work without being reminded.  Jaxson is a good friend toward others and always has something nice to say.  Jaxson works hard and makes me smile every day.  These are just some of the reasons why I nominate Jaxson for Student of the Month.

February Student of the Month

I am honored to nominate Brody Anderson as student of the month. I have had the pleasure of having Brody as a 1st grader and now a 2nd grader. This unique experience has given me the opportunity to see Brody grow academically and socially. Brody rarely has a late assignment. Every morning he unpacks his back pack and organizes his things for the day. He is responsible with school materials and personal property. He is respectful of classmates. Brody helps others and always has kind words. I cannot recall a time that Brody said or did something deliberately to hurt someone. Brody is determined to meet and exceed classroom goals. He is a whiz at math facts. When the class asked Brody how he does it. Brody answered "I study at home." Brody is determined to be the best he can be.
Integrity & cooperation are characteristics that come naturally to Brody. These characteristics bundled together make Brody a leader who quietly leads by example." ~Mrs. Drexler  

January Student of the Month

“Bailey Baltz deserves to be our student of the month. If you were ever in my classroom you could look at Bailey and know exactly what the students should be doing. Bailey is always on task and has a positive mindset about whatever the task is. She is quiet and respectful - to everyone. She stays focused and puts thought into all her responses - whether written or oral. Bailey has worked to master her multiplication & division facts and excels at mathematical reasoning. She enjoys reading and always meets her reading goals. Bailey likes to keep our classroom organized and ready for the school day too. I very much enjoy having Bailey in my class.” ~Ms. Reynolds

December Student of the Month

Adysen Tetzlaff deserves to be the Student of the Month.  Adysen shows leadership, responsibility, empathy, and integrity on a daily basis.  Adysen is a leader in the classroom.  When Adysen sees something that needs to be done, she does it.  Examples include cleaning the hallway floor after realizing her boots made a muddy mess or cleaning up any mess that is not hers.  Adysen shows responsibility because she is willing to learn and challenge herself.  Adysen always turns her homework in on time completed.  In class, Adysen does more than what is asked or expected and when she finishes something she asks, “What’s next?”  Adysen shows empathy toward others.  After an incident at recess one day, Adysen wrote another student an apology note- an idea that she came up with on her own.  She understands that others have feelings and she wants them to be happy.  It is for these reasons and more that Adysen deserves this award. ~Mrs. Tompkins

November Student of the Month

Whenever Brittany Gutche steps into my room, she brings with her a soothing, positive energy.  Her quiet demeanor is filled with enthusiasm, respect, an ability to get along with others, and a determination to do her best at all times.  I always enjoy the easy-going way in which she speaks to me about her art or whatever else may be on her mind.  To Brittany I would like to say, “Keep smiling.  You definitely deserve to be student of the month.”

October Student of the Month

Although only in school for a few short months, Korban already embodies many of the character traits we hope to instill in Redgranite Elementary students. He shows responsibility, by getting to work right away, keeping his work area tidy, and completing his school work. Korban is a friend to all in our classroom, and our day would feel incomplete if we weren’t greeted by his warm smile every morning. Korban’s respectful and polite nature, makes him a great leader, one that leads by example and not direction. I have no doubt that Korban will continue to be a positive role model in our class this year, and an exemplary student that I am sure Redgranite Elementary School can be proud of for years to come. For these reasons, I feel that Korban Withall deserves to be our Student of the Month.

September Student of the Month

Lilly Reinert is receiving the honor of 'Student of the Month' because she is a very respectful, responsible student. She is always ready to learn. She displays excellent effort, does quality work, and always turns in her assignments on time. She pays attention in class, asks questions, and works well with everyone. Her friendly personality and calm, respectful behavior is an excellent example for others. Lilly is a student well deserving of this recognition.

May Student of the Month

Evher Hernandez is Redgranite School’s May Student of the Month.  He was an easy choice to represent our school.  Evher shows what each of the character traits looks like put it into real life.

He is responsible - I don’t think he has missed a single day of returning his homework or planner in the entire year….

He is ALWAYS respectful and polite - to everyone…..

He shows empathy - he is caring and kind to anyone who is feeling down or hurt…..

He has determination.  Math isn’t always a piece of cake for Evher, but he gives 100% effort to every assignment.  He often went above and beyond in completing his word work.  

He shows the character trait leadership by being a calm model for others and for including everyone.  

Evher can be trusted to do what is right at all times.  In third grade, a student with integrity is a joy for the teacher.

I’m very happy to announce Evher as our Student of the Month.
