Simon Students of the Month
Congratulations to our Simon Students of the Month!
Grace S., Jesus B., Maggie E., Lilly G., Jorja W., and Evan H.
Please read below to see what our teachers say about these amazing students.
Grace was chosen as a Student of the Month for October. Grace is always eager to help her classmates, is a very self-motivated, conscientious student, and she gets along well with others. She is hard-working, and always sets a great example to her peers by completing all work on time with precision and attention to detail. We are pleased to have Grace represent 5th grade as one of our students of the month!
Jesus has been selected as one of our October Students of the Month. Jesus is a wonderful student who exhibits exemplary behavior and character. He is kind, friendly, helpful, and well-behaved. Jesus shows great amounts of responsibility and perseverance in the classroom. He is a wonderful example of a Simon student! We are proud to have him represent our 5th grade students.
Maggie is hard-working, self-motivated, and KIND. She quietly goes about doing the right thing every day--always being respectful to others. She is a leader by her actions. Maggie seems to be a friend to everyone. I really appreciate her dedication to her education. I am sure we will be hearing wonderful things about Maggie for years to come.
Lilly is such an awesome student. She shows up every day with a positive attitude and always gives her best. One thing I love about Lilly is that she never gives up. She keeps pushing through even when the work is difficult. We are so blessed to have Lilly in our classes this year.
Jorja is a remarkable student that always has a smile on her face. She is quick to ask questions and even quicker to help fellow classmates. She is the type of student that lights up a classroom.
Evan is a fantastic student. He is always volunteering to help his classmates and adds great value to our classroom discussions.
