October Middle School and High School Student of the Month For the month of October CMS and CHS students were nominated for student of the month based on the Character Strong trait of Patience. Patience is responding with our values or our beliefs rather than our impulses or our immediate feelings. Our middle school student of the month, Emily Zemke, was nominated by both Mr. LeBlanc and Ms. Reyzer. Mr. LaBlanc said, Emily exemplifies patience in the classroom each and every day. While others may feel rushed just to simply get their work done, Emily makes sure to stay true to her own thoughts and values by making sure that she gets her work done thoroughly and accurately, while still completing all aspects of the assignment on time. Ms. Reyzer added, Emily is an outstanding student who exhibits patience in the classroom and with her peers. She is a role models for others and an example of how to illustrate patience. She displays her patience in her classwork, classroom discussions and activities. Congratulations Emily! Our high school student of the month, Jessica Bittorf, was nominated by Ms. Magnuson. Ms. Magnuson stated, Jessica is very patient with her peers. When Jessica explains her understanding to her peers, she explains step by step to make sure her teammates understand what she is doing. She is willing to repeat her steps if everyone one doesn't understand. Based on formative assessment, Jessica understands the material but is willing to help her team if they are struggling. She actually tells her teammates to get out your paper, make sure to write this down and then shows them how to do the problem even if she's already told her other teammates what to do. Congratulations Jessica!
