EXPLANATION:

Meloney Chavira-Solis, 4th grade
New Stanley Elementary School
Nominated by: Clare Anthony, Teacher

“Meloney is a wonderful student to have in our fourth grade class. She brings so many great assests to our classroom that not only improves her own learning but all the students around.  She always strives to increase her knowledge in all subject areas by reading and asking questions.  Meloney nevers turns in work that is not done to the best of her abilities and many other students can learn from her.  She is a hard worker, respectful, helpful and reliable.  It is a joy to teach a student like Meloney!”

Sincerely,
Clare Anthony, Teacher

Alejandra Aragon-Rosas, 8th grade
West Middle School
Nominated by: Rachael Mcllvain, Teacher 

“Alejandra is a wonderful example of a student who is a student that is genuine, respectful, engaged and fun.  Throughout her classes, she is willing to work in many different settings with many different people.  While working with others she encourages them to do their best and is always willing to help others whenever she can.  She also believes in smiling and making others day!  She is always kind and quick to say hello.” 

Sincerely,
Rachael Mcllvain, Teacher  

Caleb Taussig, 9th grade

Blair Waite, Teacher
