Student Shout-Outs!
We want to celebrate our students and for our students to celebrate each other. Give a Shout-Out to a fellow classmate!

Lincoln Nuss
Someone was bullying me for my accent and he defended me and protected me from of it.

Lucas Colclasure
Lucas respected the building by picking up paper towels that were all over the floor in the Middle School bathroom when no one was looking.

Chase Wilner
Chase always tries to brighten people’s days and is always upbeat and in a good mood.

Morgan Hamm
Honesty & Respect
Morgan is always very honest to me whenever I ask her anything, even if it is about a school project. She is always respectful to everybody even if they were rude to her. She always has such a good perspective of everything and she is just a really good student in general.

Donovan Clouse
Donovan is always doing his work and is an amazing student and friend. (He is also very funny)

Mason Brooks Elizalde
Integrity & Empathy
He helps everyone and is kind to everyone around him and he is very responsible. Mason is always there to help others and make them more comfortable with what is around them. For instance, I am a new student at this school and he was my first friend here. He makes me feel more welcome to a new place! 😄

Alexander Olkhov
Alex consistently works hard on his rigorous courses, college applications, and out-of-school obligations. His tenacity is impressive and he sets a good role model by staying true to his character in light of such hard work. Bravo, Alex!

Nisha Nikhil
She’s an incredibly kind person who has encouraged me in many ways, not to mention funny and caring.

Kevan Bogan
Kevin always puts others' needs before his own, in reality they are all of the traits on the list however I could only put one. Kevin became a therapist to my entire friend group but even more than that he brought us together as a family.

Check back next week for more Shout-Outs.
