Glenwood City High/Middle School is proud to announce the February Students of the Month. The character trait that served as the focus for the month was honesty; students who demonstrate honesty are those who we trust and view as having right-mindedness, honor and integrity. These are our students who consistently do the right thing, in spite of the challenges that often accompany making tough choices. Honesty may even be connected to making a poor choice initially, but having the conviction to take ownership in an effort to make it right.
The February Student of the Month at Glenwood City High School is junior, Elijah Simmons. Elijah was nominated by Ms. Jones, Art instructor. Ms. Jones stated, “Elijah is currently my TAP student and he is a very honest and genuine person. In that role, he works alongside my 8th grade students, helping them with their projects and helping me with day-to-day chores of the art room. Elijah never puts on an air of perfection, but rather asks questions and does his best to do what is right in all circumstances. If a mistake is made, he apologizes and moves on. Elijah is not a student that makes excuses, but accepts responsibility for his actions in an honest and mature manner. Likewise, I saw this quality shine through in an art class he took last school year. I trust him completely, and find him to be an honest and forthright student. I feel Elijah Simmons is an excellent candidate for the February Student of the Month.” Elijah is the son of Awbria and Nathan Simmons.
The February Student of the Month at Glenwood City Middle School is sixth grader, Esdyn Swenby. Esdyn’s honesty was recognized by Ms. Minor who shared, “Esdyn is always honest. I can count on him to tell the truth in any situation. If he was unable to complete a homework assignment, he lets me know and then proposes a new deadline. During class, he makes sure that his tablemates are on-task and are treating my supplies with respect. He also encourages his peers to treat one another with respect and kindness.” Esdyn is the son of Sheila and Nicholas Swenby.
Students of the Month are acknowledged by having lunch provided for them and a friend, as well as being issued a unique piece of Hilltopper apparel. In addition, students are provided with preferential parking for a month (for them or a family member).
