Keith Valley Middle School is proud to announce the boys and girls who have been named "Students of the Month" for September.
Teachers select one boy and one girl from each team in the school to be nominated every month. September's sixth-grader winners are Connor Griffin, Emily Weed, Nicholas Fischer, Vanessa Roy, Ryan Bell, and Julia Heinze. Seventh-grade winners are Brady McMenamin, Calvin Simon, Quinn Comber, Alexandra Rivers, Hannah Knudsen, and Nicholas Zumpino. Eighth-grade winners are Allison Lavery, Clement Lupton, Elyse Bedics, Jonathan McFerran, Jenna D'Entremont, and Maxwell Griffith.
Students are selected based on the ways in which they demonstrate character, honesty, tolerance, understanding, responsibility, manners, and academic achievement. While there are no set criteria for selecting the winners, in general, students who are chosen help to promote a positive school environment.
Students are notified that they have been selected when they are called down to the school lobby and are congratulated by teachers and administrators. Also there to greet the honorees are past "Student of the Month" award winners. These children pass along the "Student of the Month" lapel pin that they received to the new recipients.
Students receive two invitations to the "Student of the Month" breakfast, which they can use to invite parents and teachers to accompany them to the morning celebration. Students are presented with certificates at that time. In addition to these accolades, the school honors "Students of the Month" through photos posted on bulletin boards, announcements made on KVTV, and special messages on the district-wide cable channel, HHTV. Finally, staff members are notified of which children were named "Students of the Month" and are asked to congratulate the students when they see them.
