“Noticing that I threw out some outdated flash cards, Kaetana was in complete disgust. She grabbed them and saw them as a great way to learn more vocabulary.  Her enthusiasm goes beyond the classroom. She recently volunteered to come to our French Club ‘Middle School Invasion’ where our intent is to ease nerves and let some incoming 8th graders create some bonds with older students.”  

Michael Loh is representing the English department for May.  Loh's teacher said, “Michael’s work on his final film project proves that senioritis is a myth! He set out for an ambitious project and managed to organize nearly a dozen other seniors to help him accomplish this task. Each day, Michael brought fresh footage to edit in class and managed to work diligently in pursuit of his narrative goals. His hard work and talent are both evident in episode one of The Classroom.” 

The Science department selected Michele Scaglione as student of the month for May.  

William Loewen was nominated by the Mathematics department.  His teacher said, “Billy has an A average in Calculus CP for the year and is exempt from the final exam.  He is always an active member of his group, helping anyone that needs assistance.” 

Caitlyn Scarpa was chosen by the Art department.

Student has displayed a positive attitude and good sportsmanship through the school year, including the month of May.”
