Students of the Month
The Medina Teachers Association, the Medina School District and the Medina Business Association are proud to
announce the November selections for Students of the Month. This award is a combined effort of these organizations to recognize students who go above and beyond to help teachers and fellow students succeed and enjoy school.
Creekside Floral and Design is the sponsor for this month.
It is an honor to nominate ANTONIO RIZZO in Mrs. Brooks third grade class for Student of the Month. He is an excellent representation of our MUSTANG MISSION here at OAK ORCHARD.
He was nominated by his teachers to be a member of the School Safety Patrol Team, and does a great job I might add. He is always prepared for PE, always does his best in all of his classes and activities.
Courteous to his classmates, Antonio puts others first, is attentive and understands that we listen to others when they are speaking. Makes room for friends in line in class and the hallway.
Antonio plays by the rules, tells the truth during game play and in competition. Not everyone will admit they are "out" when tagged, Antonio makes sure he honors the rules to whatever games we may be playing.
Antonio Rizzo Assists others in need, I've seen him help others up when they have fallen, helped younger students locate their bus and he always says the magic words "Please and Thank You".
For these reasons and many more it is my pleasure to nominate ANTONIO RIZZO for your consideration. Travis Phillips
I would like to nominate Madeline Mark for Student of the Month at Clifford Wise. Madeline is a role model in all aspects. She has impeccable manners and is very well spoken. Everyday she comes in with a smile and asks how my day was. She is always the first one to do what I ask and helps others find what they need and get ready. Her hand is constantly raised to answer questions and add important insight to topics. She uses humor to lighten the mood when students are having a bad day. She is empathetic to others. I asked her if she wanted to be apart of Student Council this year, and she told me that she was apart of it last year and wants someone else to have an opportunity to participate. I wish I had 22 other Madeline Mark’s in my classroom. Keep up the great work Madeline! Jason Klein
I would like to nominate Bryden McMurray for Student of the Month. Bryden goes out of his way to help other students in the class, is always the first one to volunteer a helping hand, and is just a stand-up young man. For example, whenever I let students choose their own groups or partners, Bryden is always willing to join the student(s) that are not as well liked, or are always lacking a group. Additionally, a student dropped their binder the other day and Bryden was the first to ask if the student wanted help picking up papers, while other students around just stared. He is consistently polite, asks questions, and goes above and beyond to make sure he is doing what he can to be successful, both as a student and as a person.
Congratulations to this month’s winners! The MTA, MCSD, and the MBA will continue the student of the month program throughout the school year. Be on the lookout for the next honorees in the coming months. Look for posters in the windows of Medina businesses identifying them as proud supporters of this program. Who will be the next outstanding Medina student to be honored???
