Redgranite Elementary

Redgranite Elementary is a kindergarten through 5th grade school with a dedicated staff who have worked hard to provide a quality education for all students. Redgranite Elementary participates in the SAGE program, providing small class sizes in grades kindergarten through third grade, a rigorous curriculum, ongoing professional development for staff members, and an afterschool program. Our character education program encourages and celebrates positive behaviors of our children. We encourage our parents to be active through volunteering and participating in our parent teacher organization. We are very proud of the positive attitude of our students and the support from parents and the community.

May Student of the Month


Mary Covey deserves to be Redgranite Student of the Month because she is a dependable and responsible girl who shows leadership to the kindergartners and first graders in the classroom. Mary comes to school every morning with a smile on her face and is eager to learn. Mary always completes and returns her homework on time. Mary participates in class and thinks carefully before answering a question or sharing a comment. I can count on Mary to be a leader in the classroom. When our class receives a new student, I can count on Mary to take the time to help the new students, show them around the classroom, and get them acquainted with the various routines, procedures, and learning centers that are already in place in the classroom. Mary’s leadership, as well as her dependability and responsibility, is why she deserves to be Student of the Month.


April Student of the Month




Nick Gonzales is Redgranite School student of the month for April. Nick is a fifth grader who has shown leadership throughout his years at Redgranite Elementary by his positive attitude and actions at school. Nick is friendly and pleasant, both to teachers and fellow students alike. He demonstrates exceptional manners with both his words and his actions. Even simple things like pushing in someone else's chair or putting a book away are the kinds of things Nick will do without being asked. Nick is a responsible playground supervisor and excellent role model. He chooses good strategies to help younger students solve conflicts in a positive way, and also interacts and plays with the kids outside. In class, Nick completes his homework on time, puts forth his best effort, and can be counted on to do the right things and make good choices, even in the absence of an adult. These qualities make Nick an excellent candidate for student of the month, and will help him be successful as he moves on to Parkside next year.

March Student of the Month


Kyler Meyer is nominated for student of the month. Kyler works hard to do well on his class work and homework. He is very responsible. He always has his needed items for class and his homework is done on time. Kyler knows the rules and always follows them, this shows a good model for his peers and younger students. When Kyler is responsible for Playground duty he is always ready and is willing to take it over for anyone else that may be gone when it is there turn. I never have to talk to Kyler about his behavior or actions, as he is controlling them all on his own. This is why I nominate Kyler for student of the month.

February Student of the Month


Lucy Marks is a remarkable student and person. She is, genuinely, one of the most polite and kind students I've had the opportunity to teach. Lucy is helpful and never complains. She takes on each day's tasks as if they were her job and always does her best work. Lucy has many great attributes including good grades, responsibility for her duties, and the respect for her classmates, peers, and staff members of our school. But, the one thing that stands out for her is how she can turn a dismal or frustrating day into a positive, uplifting experience. Lucy's smile just warms your heart and makes you feel happy and glad to be in school. For these reasons and many more, I nominate Lucy Marks to be Redgranite School's "Student of the Month" for February.

Neven Meyer shows excellent character traits each and every day. He is a wonderful role model to all students.

We frequently create goals in class, and Neven challenges himself to go beyond the regular 4th grade curriculum and shows determination to meet the goals he sets for himself. Neven definitely deserves to be Redgranite’s student of the month.
