Congratulations to December Student of the Month, Meredith Baumann! Meredith, 9th Grade, is 4.0 student who is involved in Key Club, SADD, and Scholar’s Bowl. Additionally, she played Volleyball in the Fall and plans to participate in Track during the Spring. Here is what our staff had to say about Meredith! Jared Jaskiewicz – “Meredith has been a consistent, reliable, and actively engaged student since the first week of school. She also was out of school for quarantine for over a week and before I even got the confirmation from school that she would be out, she had already emailed me asking what work she would need to do at home to stay caught up. Meredith takes great initiative and is also self direct in her learning. Meredith is a joy to have in class. She is always engaged, asks clarifying questions when confused, and volunteers to answer questions when the opportunity to present itself. Meredith is also in my seminar and is always very polite and kind and is always a welcome and kind person to those around.” Amanda Pfizenmaier – “Meredith is a very sweet and dedicated student. She goes out of her way to be polite and always has a kind word for everyone she encounters.” Shari Taylor – “Meredith is such a nice, hard-working young lady. She is very conscientious about her grades so puts the time and effort into making sure what she does is quality work. Appreciate her efforts & attention to detail!!” Congratulations Meredith! Go Falcons!
