The students of the month are Melinna Salas, third grade, Noble Prentis Elementary School; Liliana Rodriguez Calderon, eighth grade, Argentine Middle School; and Joanna Perez, 12th grade, Harmon High School.
The nomination letters:
Melinna Salas, nominated by David E. Berry, teacher: “When working with Melinna, it is immediately clear that she is exceptional. Each and every day, she quietly finishes every bit of work she is given; without complaint, and always with her best effort. Melinna is a kind, thoughtful, quiet achiever. It is remarkable that she can understand a task, skill strategy or objective after being shown once. One of her great strengths is she is a team player. Outside of school, Melinna is an avid soccer player. She is showing great promise as an athlete. Melinna Salas is definitely should be considered as a student of the month”. Sincerely, David E. Berry, teacher
Liliana Rodriguez Calderon, nominated by Kathy Rosenberg and David Bean, teachers: “Liliana works well with other students. She is always willing to help students that are having problems in math. She always turns in her homework and she does well on her tests. Lily consistently keeps up with her grades in all of her classes. She is a joy to have in class and I highly recommend her”. Sincerely, Kathy Rosenberg and David Bean, teachers
Joanna Perez, nominated by Steve Howard, teacher: “Joanna Perez is a special young lady. I am continually surprised at the amount of time she gives of herself. As accomplished as her career has been, she always finds time for others. When needed, she will help tutor classmates and younger students, often using her bilingual skills. Joanna would be described as a ‘people person’ with high energy. She is a dedicated, hard working student willing to take on challenges. Joanna is a focused, caring young lady that has set high aspiration for her future”. Sincerely, Steve Howard, teacher
