He currently has a 95% in JROTC and quietly sets a positive example for others to follow. In addition, he is on-time and prepared for class each and every day.
Kathleen Fraider - Nominated by Mrs. Mesaf - At the beginning of the year Katie was more to herself and seemed to be having a difficult time speaking up in class and in a small group. As time went on Katie has built up a lot of confidence in exhibiting her prior knowledge and wisdom in class tasks. I am really proud of Katie coming out of her shell and sharing her knowledge with her classmates. I believe she will be a great success in years to come!!!
Charles Haltom - Nominated by Ms. McNeela - Mr. Haltom recognized signs of seizure in one of his friends during lunch. He quickly took initiative and told security what he observed. His friend was taken to the nurse's office where seizure was confirmed. Mr. Haltom reported to the nurse's office to inform nurses what he observed. The information that he reported is extremely helpful in the ongoing care of his friend. I believe that Mr. Haltom is worthy of November's student of the month for acting quick and taking the correct steps to help a friend in need.
