Congratulations to all our Students of the Month!
The artist of the month is Jeanne Earl. Mrs.Cutillo describes Jeanne as a creative, conscientious student who puts in 100% effort at planning her work. She challenges her art skills with fresh ideas, manages her time appropriately, takes pride in her work and seeks input from her peers and teachers for improvement.
Tiernan Doyle is the recipient for TCCS. Known as the peppy Sparta Scoop anchor, Mr.Krauland condemns Tiernan for his creativity, enthusiasm and passion and describes him as a pleasure to have in class. A senior who always seeks to lend a hand to his peers, Tiernan is hoping to major in broadcast journalism in college.
Representing the English department is Jamie Corter, enrolled in AP Literature & Composition and From the Page to the Stage and elective Musical Theater. A excellent classroom trait of Jamie's is that she fully participates in discussions for her own benefit rather than for the grade. The senior is a pleasure to have in class as she is diligent and committed to learning.
Elise Kerim was awarded the award for the Math department. Mrs.Shatzel says she feels lucky to have the junior as her student for the second consecutive year. Elise is an exceptional student who is always prepared for class, consistently going above and beyond. She is a group leader who graciously helps her peers without being asked to help them. Additionally, Elise does an amazing job creating study guides for summatives which she shares with her peers.
Mr.Hood nominates freshman Shahed Al-Aydi. She has a fine talent for languages, is pleasantly disposed and is very diligent.
Receiving the award for the Music department is Blaze Dalio, a senior well rounded in music. He is a drum major in the SHS marching band, enrolled in AP Music Theory, a member of instrumental and musical groups (ex. Honors Choir and Mens Choir) and is a teachers assistant for concert choir. Blaze is going into music education and clearly proves every interest in learning to prepare himself for the next chapter of his life in college. Beyond his accomplishment, Blaze is overall a great kid with a wonderful work ethic and attitude. The entire music department is impressed by his drive.
Freshman Gerard Deleu received the award for the Science department.
Junior Cole Patten is the PE student of the month. In their football unit, Cole serves as captain and is driving his team to an overall victory. Cole plays as the quarterback and makes long, accurate throws while also making catches to score touchdowns when his team relies on him to score points. At all times Cole shows his classmates respect and exhibits great sportsmanship which "makes" the class.
David Rubin was recognized as the History student of the month who has so far done an outstanding job in Honors World History. Aside from showing a great deal of respect to his peers and Mr.Decrescenzi, David is always eager to participate in class and has shown a genuine sense of inquiry on what is being taught.
Our spotlight athlete of the month is senior Emily Lake, the varsity floor captain in volleyball. A floor caption is chosen by the coach to represent the team and is someone who is above all the other players in terms of respect. Emily invited any players to her house before tryouts in the summer to practice their skills- many girls that were nervous would go with Emily for advice on improvement and Emily spent the time to help them. After each game the team debriefs as to how they can improve, where Emily always steps in and speaks to the girls to remember how much they love the sport and to give it all they got during every game. Emily leads by example and always is honest and plays by the rules.
