Student of the Month

Students must maintain at least average grades and are outstanding in meeting the criteria set up by the teachers.  Each month the students are made aware of the virtue to practice.  Each class will feature two students per month.  Every student will have an equal opportunity to qualify, because the criteria are not based on academics or athletic ability.
