My student of the week would be Parker Glaves. Parker is a library aid and has been very willing and helpful in keeping our library organized. Parker is the strong silent type and is reliable and careful with the tasks we ask of him. Above all he does so with a polite disposition. Thanks for your help Parker, Mrs Leslie and I really appreciate you!
I chose Kaleigh DeLeon as student of the week this week because of her hard work in the classroom. She focuses on her work as a student and encourages others to do so as well when they are members of her team. “Together we all succeed” is what comes to mind when I see how Kaleigh works in a class. History is her favorite subject as she loves to learn about the past and to talk about things people remember from earlier times. (But Biology is a close second!) Kaleigh has three very different dogs that she enjoys playing with, and her favorite shows are Dr.Phil and Judge Judy. Kaleigh also had an incredible summer… ask her about where she went and what concerts she saw!
So, this one was awkward, but Michael loves it, and it doesn’t really seem to say anything truly inappropriate.
My choice for student of the week is Michael Johnson because he has stood head and shoulders above his peers. He is a leader among leaders. I am also compelled to choose him because of what his classmates had to say about him, which I have included below:
Michael is a Really smart and a nice person
Best tutor ever to help with anything, very respectful young man
Michael was one of the decent Pokémon players in the U.S. for a short time
Michael saved a child from a burning building
Michael could've saved the dinosaurs
Michael can swim through land and walk through air
Michael discovered the male platypus has a venomous spur on its hind leg
Michael breathes in carbon dioxide and exhales oxygen
Michael presence makes the football team smarter
As you can see from his peer's comments Michael is a larger than life example of excellence and he is destined to change the world someday. I am truly impressed with his leadership in class and truly wish him the best for all of his future endeavors.
Gabe Silas is one of the few students this year I get to have twice in a day. In the morning, he is asking solid questions and cracking wry jokes in Chemistry along with his fellow sophomores. In the afternoon, Gabe stands literally head and shoulders above his classmates as the only high schooler in this semester of Robotics. In both classes he is a dedicated and fun student, not afraid to ask for help when he needs it and helping others whenever he can. Keeping up with 2 periods of my puns can be a tall order... but Gabe measures up in every way!

Jean-Paul Brown was absent from class recently and came to see me about his missed classwork upon his return. We had watched a documentary in class so I gave him several options for viewing it. Having made his choice, he made appropriate arrangements and arrived as promised to view the parts he had missed. I was very impressed by his diligence and follow-through. He did a great job of taking responsibility for his work, and showed discipline and integrity in honoring his commitments. Well done, Jean-Paul!
