The October Students are:

Elementary student of the month is 2nd grader Remington Bamberg. Remi is the daughter of Earl and Pam Bamberg.

On Friday nights you can find her on the sidelines with her Mini Rebel Cheer Squad cheering on the Rebels.

Middle school student of the month is 7th grader Jax Hearold. Jax is the son of Shelby and Melanie Hearold. Jax’s teachers said he is a very hard worker and is willing to go the extra mile to stay on top of his work, often staying in at PE for help on concepts he doesn’t quite understand. His favorite color is blue, and his favorite food is steak. Jax is a multi-sport athlete, but baseball is his favorite. He plays baseball at Riverdale and also plays travel ball with the LA Patriots, who just brought home a first place that we had won from a tournament in Texas.
