For Dr. Spickard to read: (Students of the Month) Thank you to all students who continuously display the six pillars of character. MMS teachers have chosen the students of the month for January.
The 6th grade staff have chosen Delaney Higgins and Tyler Saunders as students of the month. Delaney can be counted on to do the right thing and to speak up on behalf of others. She is very responsible and trustworthy. Tyler is a very hard worker. He is respectful of staff and students alike. He cares about his classmates and goes out of his way to help those around him.
The 7th grade staff have chosen Justice Cuddie and James Stines as students of the month for their grade. Justice is positive and caring to students and staff. She works hard to make others feel appreciated and valued about. Justice is kind and helpful to everyone. JJ always works hard and is a thoughtful and considerate student. He is helpful to both students and staff. JJ is respectful and kind to others.
The 8th-grade teachers have selected Steven Lossing and Hailey Waryas as students who have consistently displayed what it means to be a student of character. The 8th-grade staff has chosen Hailey because she is a prime example of what it means to be a person of character. Hailey not only accepts people for who they are and does not pre-judge, but she also demonstrates outstanding citizenship by not being swayed by how others may think. Hailey’s willingness to help any peer simply because she wants to be a good person and friend does not go unnoticed by the staff. In addition, Hailey is extremely responsible with her school work, always striving to go above and beyond to do her best, and she is someone that shows respect to both staff and peers and can be trusted to always make decisions that help her peers. Steven is a prime example of a caring, respectful and trustworthy 8th grader. Steven stands out as someone who accepts people for who they are and does not judge his peers based on other's perceptions. He is not only willing to try his hardest as a responsible and respectful students in terms of his school work, but equally important is how he models how to treat people based on what is on the inside.
