Students Of The Month For January Recognized

Public school January Students of the moth were recognized at the January meeting of the School Board.  They were presented certificates and gift cards and recognized by Superintendent Alison Strong.

The student selected from Red River Elementary is Gwyneth Palmer.  The nomination statement was read by Superintendent.

Gwyneth is a great student. She is always prepared and eager to learn in class. She is helpful and friendly to both her peers and her teachers. She encourages her peers to do their best on all their work. She participates in class and adds to our learning environment. She is overall a great student and leader. –  Nominated by Ms. Frick and Ms. Johnson.

Strong read the nomination of Connor Dubois from Red River Academic Academy. 

Connor was chosen as student of the month because he exemplifies the true definition of a great student. This is true not only because of the grades he makes weekly, but also because of his behavior and his ability to be a team player or a leader, whichever is needed in order to help his classmates. Connor is also honest and can be counted on.  He is one of my best students. Nomination by Mrs. Bumgardner.

The student of the month from the Junior High is Ashlee Procell

Ashlee Procell is an absolute joy to have in class. I’ve had the privilege of teacher her math in fourth and seventh grades. Ashlee always goes above and beyond in everything she does. Her grades, participation, attendance and class work are exceptional. She often takes a leadership role in her class group and exceeds expectations when solving a problem and supports her reasoning in the solution. Mrs. Brunson notices that Ashlee takes time to encourage other students and always treats others with respect. She exemplifies what makes Red River such a great school system. Ashlee is highly valued by all of her teachers. Mr. Ross often refers to her passion for “digging deep”, and that her efforts are beyond impressive.  Added to her global knowledge of all things that work, this is the pillar of her academic success. She was nominated by Ms. Drew.

The High School student selected was Ethan Williamson.  His nomination statement said Ethan is an All-American student. He is very helpful to any student he sees in need.  In my US History class, Ethan saw a student struggling and quickly came to his rescue. He was quiet and didn’t make a scene while he was helping.  He has a great rapport with all students.  Not only does he excel in the classroom but he is a phenomenal football and baseball player, as well.  I am honored to have Ethan in my class. Williamson was nominated by Ms. Thomas.
