Each month throughout the school year we will be honoring one middle school and one high school student as student of the month. Students will be nominated and voted on by staff based on the character strong trait of the month. For the month of September the character strong trait was commitment. Commitment is sticking to your choices. A willingness to practice and fulfill your obligations or goals even when it is challenging or you don’t feel like it. In the middle school our student of the month, Isabelle Schradel, was nominated by Ms. Magler. Ms. Magler said this student shows commitment in the classroom and with her extra curricular activities. She is a hard worker and holds herself to high standards. She also encourages other students to do better in the classroom and with their work. In the high school our student of the month, Colton Zacharias, was nominated by Mr. LaBlanc. Mr. LaBlanc stated Colton (CZ) is the true example of commitment within our school district! Not only is he involved in school and in sports, but his schooling is actually off-site for welding as well. On top of all of this, he is a member of the US Military! He attends his regular schooling during the day, attends practices or games at night, and then even has to attend drill on select weekends too! Anyone that really knows CZ would have to say that his commitment level to the things he does is extremely top notch! Congratulations to both Isabelle and Colton!
On October 6th, 11 high school students traveled with Mr. LaBlanc to Glenwood City to attend the 1st annual "Build My Future WI" event. This event was held to provide students from area schools an opportunity to get hands-on experience in the trades industry. During the course of the day, students were able to practice running mini-excavators, "drive" a semi-truck simulator, operate trenching equipment, pour concrete, climb utility poles, and even put up gutters and siding, just to name a few. Our students all reported that they thought the day was awesome to be able to participate in. Hopefully next year we can take an even larger group to the event!
Rhea Bodsberg, Lynn Ryan, and Jonathon Thomas represented Clayton's FBLA Chapter at the FBLA Fall Leadership Lab held at UW-Stout on October 5th. They were able to participate in 2 different breakout sessions on leadership, listen to some great program and industry information provided by a few of UW-Stout's Marketing and Business Education Students, and were also provided with a tour of UW-Stout. These 3 did an excellent job of representing Clayton at the event!
