Students Of The Month For May

The final recognitions of the school year were made as Students of the Month from Red River Schools at the school board meeting Monday.  Superintendent Alison Strong read their nomination statements.

Red River Elementary School – Rylan Haire

Rylan is a one-of-a-kind fourth grader at RRES!  To know him is to love him. He does not meet a stranger. His personality beams through his smile.  Throughout the day, he encourages his peers to do their best. Rylan is always thinking of his classmates before himself.  He is a hard worker when it comes to his academics. This year, Rylan has shown significant gains in reading, writing, and math. This young man continues to strive for excellence in the classroom; he is genuinely a great student.  Nominated by Ms. Leleux.

Red River Academic Academy – Noah Woodson

Students like Noah are the reason RRAA has an A rating with the state educational department.  He began the year like any other. But little did he know that this was the year he was gonna learn what was meant by the statement “Hard work pays off.”  I saw what Noah didn’t see – his potential and the young man he is destined to become.  After finally convincing/bullying him to put in the work required to become awesome, he began to see the fruits of his labor. Grades came up to C’s and B’s, and even A’s.  More importantly than that is the fact that he went from not caring about his work or success to being the top student in class. That says more about the student Noah is than I could ever say. He may not have started off so awesome, but he surely ended up that way! Nominated by Mrs. Fields.

Red River Junior High – Kaleah Crawford

Kaleah has such a big heart! She displays a hugely positive attitude towards others and toward learning.  Kaleah is respectful to peers and teachers.  She is an outstanding athlete and works hard in her daily practice to become the best she can be.  She can be counted on to be a team player. It has been a true pleasure to have Kaleah in my class and I am proud to name her as Student of the Month!  Nominated by Coach Hogan.

Red River High School – Hadeel Hizam

Hadeel, a junior at RRHS, is a deserving candidate for Student of the Month. She always treats classmates, teachers and staff with respect. As a responsible student, she strives to reach her personal goals. She completes her work on time, but still willingly makes time to help her peers and share her knowledge with them.   Being a talented writer who strives for perfection is just one of her many assets. Mature beyond her years, Hadeel is an excellent Role model who challenges herself to be the best she can be.  Nominated by Mrs. Guidry.

This concludes the VFW and Auxiliary 7287’s Student of the Year program in Red River public and private schools.  The Coushatta VFW teamed up with Lott Oil/Chevron to present each student each month a certificate and gift card in recognition of their excellence in pursuing their goals.
