Students of the Month

Each month, our teachers submit recommendations for students of the month. Two students are selected each month and are presented with this award on our morning announcements during the final week of the month. Along with receiving this acknowledgment, students receive a certificate of achievement, and two prizes, one to benefit them inside of school and one to benefit them outside of school. We could not be more proud of our Students of the Month!
