First grade would not be the same without Lethe. She is kind, helpful, hardworking, and a positive influence to classmates. Lethe is kind by showing empathy and concern for her friends and teachers. She is always willing to assist her table partners when they have a question or need help. Lethe uses her time wisely and completes her tasks in school. One of my favorite things about her is that no matter what I know she will always try her best. We are lucky to have her in room 22! Keep up the great work!
Brittany always comes to class ready to learn. She has a positive attitude and is kind to everyone in class. Brittany works hard in math, science, reading and writing. She also does her best work in arts and crafts.
Simikiloni is such an amazing 2nd grader. Even though I know his friends like to call him Miki, I like to call him by his full name. I find his name just as special as he is. Simikiloni is an outstanding student who works hard to do well and is also a good friend to others.
As a student, Simikiloni has a wonderful attitude towards learning. He is eager and willing to try new things. No matter what challenge I give him, he always tries his best. Simikiloni asks questions when he doesn’t understand something and will persevere even when the task is difficult. He is focused and listens attentively as he tries to learn new concepts. Simikiloni takes responsibility for his learning and is the kind of hard working student all teachers enjoy having in their class.
Simikiloni is also polite with good manners and is always willing to help others. You will often hear him say “Thank you” when someone gives him something or helps him out. He treats everyone with kindness and is the type of person everyone wants as a friend. I am glad Simikiloni is a member of our class. He makes Ms. V.’s classroom a positive place to be.
North Star, meet Angelique, but call her Angie.
Angie had a reading goal. She worked hard every day at school and at home to get better and better at goal…until her reading goal wasn’t hard anymore. Actually, it has become what she is an EXPERT at.
Well, something really amazing happened when she reached her reading goal and got to set a new reading goal: SHE FELT PROUD OF HERSELF. It feels good to work hard and achieve something. Want to know what she did when she felt so proud? She wrote a story during Writing about the day she achieved her reading goal.
A reader and a writer. She is a good person to know.

Do you know what perseverance means? It means to keep trying even when things become difficult and Katheryne perseveres every day. In third grade we have been learning multiplication and division and it can be kind of tricky. Katheryne asks great questions when she doesn't understand something and is excellent at drawing models to help herself understand what it means to multiply and divide. Not only to does she work hard on her classwork, she's also a great community member. She uses kind words and gives praise to others, follows directions the first time, and does the right thing even when nobody is looking. We are so happy she is a part of our third grade class!
In my class, we spend twenty days to learn and practice the routines of how to become an efficient student. Heni did not need 20 days to learn what an efficient learner looks and acts like. She has most of those qualities deep in her brain already. Heni is very focused on every single task that she faces. She knows how to ask hard questions, which does not come easily to a student this young. The best quality Heni possesses is her ability to listen. She listens to her teammates when it is time to discuss an issue. She responds to her teammates in a way that shows she has listened, and she cares about what they all had to say. Heni is a very talented human being, and in my opinion her talents will carry her very far in life. I am not talking about talents like the ability to sing, I am talking about her talent as a kind human being. Oh, By the way! If we ever have a talent show, she can sing like no other. She proved it to all of us last Friday.
Brisa is a student who deserves recognition. She represents our community of caring in the following ways: Brisa shows respect when she listens and participates in class. She is responsible when she completes her classwork and homework. I see a person who is trustworthy because I can count on her to follow directions the first time. I see a caring person in how she treats her friends and fellow classmates. She demonstrates the value of family by being kind to all of us. I am so proud of these traits I see in Brisa.
Whenever I see Sione outside of school as he’s walking home, he always shouts out a big hello to me and I think, “I’m lucky I got to have this kid as my student.” He is kind to everybody and I appreciate the energy that kindness brings to our class. He always does his best on his work. He always makes responsible choices and asks questions when he needs clarification. I know that I can trust Sione to do the right thing. I can say with confidence that he makes the world a better place. Above all, he demonstrates a deep respect for his fellow humans and Room 31 is happy to have him on Team Badger.
Don't let the name fool you! Yorlay pronounced Yor lie. She is a fifth grade student in Mr. Myron's class, Green Pod.

add and subtract decimals. Also, she is learning how to multiply and divide decimals. She is Clever in Math. She like to hang out with her bestie, Joselyn.
When you see her during lunch or at recess, say "hi" to Yorlay. She is the one with the spunky, blonde streaks in her hair!!
Selecting somebody for spotlight student this week was a difficult choice. Luckily for me, my classroom helped me with that decision. Our spotlight student this week is Daniel . Some words that the class used to describe Daniel include smart, kind, funny, and very presentable.
I appreciate Daniel very much because he has done a lot to try to help others in the classroom. At his table there are two new students and he has done a great job helping them with the routines of the classroom and school.
One of Daniel's good friends said that whenever he's having a bad day, Daniel can make him happy by telling them a joke. Another student noticed that one time Daniel was playing with a bunch of little kids that were looking up to him.
Daniel truly is a great student, and it is no wonder that 40% of the class selected him as our spotlight student.
Room 21 in yellow pod is proud to have a student and friend like Itieli. He is a hard worker, funny, and kind. He will always greet you with a mighty hello and smile, and make sure he says goodbye to you each day. Itieli is a friend to all in our classroom. He is also a great role model for his peers. He always has his homework ready to go in the morning and loves to read during breakfast. Room 21 is a better place because of Itieli!
For our first spotlight of the year, I would like to spotlight a student, who sets an example for peers and younger students alike. He always works hard, participates, asks questions, follows directions, and pushes himself to be better each day. He is also kind, caring, and always willing to lend a hand to anyone in need. I am so proud that he is a member of our class, and I am very thankful to learn with him each day. This student is Naeata. Naeata, thank you for all your hard work. I can’t wait to see how much you grow this year and all that you accomplish!
Room 26 is lucky enough to have a student that always does his best work, has a great attitude, and is always nice to other students. That student is Hans!! Hans is a great example of how a student can be smart, cool, kind, handsome and funny...all at the same time! Hans always makes us laugh, but always at the appropriate time. He offers help when he can tell someone needs it, he asks for help if necessary, and he makes our classroom a better place. We sure are lucky to have Hans in our class!!
