Each week I will highlight a student who is standing out among the rest of our class. Students are expected to always strive to do their best and work toward individual growth and social and academic improvement.
Emma Bell is our star student this last week of August. Emma has done a great job with turning in all assignments and having her planner signed. She has been a leader by helping others around her and giving her total attention to the teacher when Mr. Zanger is speaking. Emma focuses on the task at hand and when she finishes she works on her AR points and skill math. Emma has made sure not to disturb or bother others when she is working at her seat. Great job, Emma!

Breanna Matticks was the star student for the last week of Ocotber. Breanna loves to work on her cursive writing and she was proactive this week by writing all of her spelling words in cursive. Cursive can be like learning a new language and Breanna has shown she is a leader in her cursive handwriting. Great Job and keep up the good work!

Ryle has been a leader in our classroom by taking care of our library after school and by helping pass out papers before the school day starts.

Great Job and keep up the good work!
Sydney Allen was the star student for the first week of December. Sydney and I talked about what a good reader she was at the end of first quarter. However, she only had 13.6 points. She decided she could do more and set a goal of 30 AR points for second quarter. Now toward the end of second quarter she has realized her potential and currently has 51.7 points in second quarter. I knew you could do it. Great Job and keep up the good work!
Ellie Lewis has been the star student since returning from winter break. Ellie has shown a years worth of growth so far this year with her reading.

I have been really proud of her work ethic over the last month. Great job and keep up the good work!
Katie Nugent is our star student of the week for January. We have been working on good written answers to our reading comprehension questions and Katie really impresses me with her thought out answers. This is a skill we look at mastering by the end of third grade and Katie is definitely a leader in this area. Great job and keep up the good work.
Gage Bruns is our star leader of the week for February. Gage gives his attention and focus to the lessons being taught. He does an excellent job of putting his own thoughts and work down on an assignment and then takes it home to have it looked over. Some great learning experiences can happen at home also when parents discuss missed questions or expand on a concept that the child did not understand in the classroom. Gage has all A's currently for the third quarter. Great job and keep up the good work.
Sawyer Veach is our star leader of the week for the beginning of March. Our focus the beginning of March has been to be proactive. Sawyer does a good job of knowing what he needs to do and gets his work done. If he has questions he raises his hand and comes up and gets help. He has been working hard on his skill math and is one of three students who have passed their multiplication and division facts. He hardly ever has a card flip and is very trustworthy. Great job and keep up the good work.
Chris Brodie is our star leader of the week for the beginning of April. Chris is a very caring student that always wants to do his best. He knows what he needs to do and he gets the job done. He has been working on improving his writing and he has definitely improved in that area from the beginning of the year. He continues to listen and learn each day. Great job and keep up the good work.
Aubrey Cornwell is our star leader for the end of April. Aubrey has been working really hard on her cursive. It took a lot of practice but she has beautiful cursive handwriting now. Great job! Your hard work paid off. She has also been working really hard to pass her multiplication facts. I love to see students who are giving their best effort and Aubrey has done a very nice job with her effort this past week. Keep up the good work.
Brennen Carter is our star leader for the first week of May. During math time we usually do some individual practice and then work in our groups on tougher concepts and word problems. Brennen was working in his group and he said "Don't tell me the answer yet, I want to see what I get first." I love to see hard workers and individual learning. Brennen was a great example of this for our class this week. Keep working hard.
