Student of the Month
Malia-Lynn Deveas - At the beginning of the school year, during lunch, I asked Malia to invite another student to have lunch with her group. Malia did not hesitate and now they have a larger lunch group! She is respectful, outgoing, friendly, and kind. She is also a good citizen and student.
Deborah Kanu - Deborah's work ethic speaks for her grades. She walks in everyday eager to learn and influences her classmates to do the same. Deborah can often be caught doing something great, such as collaborating with others, explaining an assignment, or involved in an in-depth discussion about the topic of the day. She is great even when no one is watching. She is the epitome of a model student. She IS WONDERful!
Cameron Hutchins - Cameron is a student who is deeply curious about psychology. She is engaged in our studies - asking questions and going outside the classroom to find answers. She is excited to bring her findings to the class and share them with other students. It is this level of inquiry and interest that makes Cameron a delight to work with.
Ivan Montesinos - Ivan is a positive light for all of our students and staff. He is selfless and compassionate, always striving to serve others. Ivan has already proven to be a strong leader in the building and jumps at any opportunity to explore the WONDER of McClure and beyond!
Isaiah Marshall - Isaiah holds the door open for all of our students as they come into the building each morning and makes sure the flags are raised. He helps at lunch time to ensure that our building stays nice. At the end of the day, he assists in retiring the colors (taking the flags down) at the end of the school day. Isaiah is respectful, helpful and supportive.
Kali Lotankar - Kali has been awesome! She is very involved and committed to helping out and sharing ideas in any way possible. She has also been an intricate part of our student council and even stepped up to be a part of the Speech competition at District Rally. Kali is truly part of what makes our PULSE culture so awesome!
Ezequiel Urdaneta Hernandez - Ezequiel always comes into class with a positive attitude. He helps his classmates each day in class and works well with others. He is willing to think critically and persevere even when an assignment or reading is difficult for him at first. Ezequiel is very engaged in class on a regular basis.
Yesenia Lopez - Yesenia comes to class every day prepared and ready to learn. Although she is quiet in class, her written work shows her understanding of the readings and material. She always has a beautiful smile on her face and greets me every time I see her in the hallways. I appreciate her hard work and effort in my class!
