The following students were chosen to be Academic Student of the Month for October:
Academic Student of the Month in Math
“Giovanna Fowler has done a fantastic job transitioning to the high school, taking charge of her freshman year. She is always involved in classroom discussions; asking and answering questions. Gia takes advantage of every learning opportunity that is made to the students. She is truly an amazing young lady and a good role model. Congratulations Gia and keep up your winning ways.”
She was nominated by Ms. Capullo.
Academic Student of the Month in English
“For three years, we have watched Xin persevere like no other students in her class. She consistently works to be the very best student she can be, and it shows in all of her work. Xin is a model student for others who are experiencing challenges, as she has been able to use her challenges to her advantage, bettering herself at every turn. Xin earned Mastery on her English Regents in June, which is an amazing accomplishment for any student, but an exceptional achievement for a student whose first language is not English. We are very proud of Xin.”
She was nominated by Mrs. Spore and Mrs. Perry.
Academic Student of the Month in Science
“Joey consistently and authentically engages in the activities of the Environmental Science classroom. He adds to our climate crisis debate with thoughtful and insightful perspectives, invites and encourages others to participate in class activities, and in the Mohonasen landscaping and garden initiatives. Joey is a great example of a curious learner.”
He was nominated by Ms. Aulita.
Academic Student of the Month in Social Studies
“We would like to nominate Kenneth Navarro for working diligently to complete his APEX courses in Environmental Science and PIG.”
He was nominated by Mrs. Priscilla Perry and Mrs. Stephanie D’Annibale.
