BIG SKY – As part of its Student of the Month/Terrific Kids of the Month program, the Big Sky School District honored four students in April for their positive attitudes.

Teachers choose two “terrific kids” from kindergarten through fifth grades and two “students of the month” in middle and high school, recognizing them based on a different theme every month.

An announcement is made over the intercom, and the students are called into the office to be congratulated. In addition, the k-5 honorees are rewarded with a burger from The Corral, and the chosen middle and high school students get pizza from Blue Moon Bakery.

Sidney Morris shows up to the classroom with a huge infectious smile on his face every day. He has a very positive attitude when it comes to interacting with his peers, teachers, big buddies and schoolwork. We love that he is ready and willing to try new things and has fun doing it. Well done Sid!

DiTullio_Drew_1253-5 Terrific Kid of the Month – third grade student Drew DiTullio

Drew demonstrates an outstanding positive attitude, be it from her engagement during class instruction, working with peers in small groups, or trying new things. Drew tackles problems head-on with no complaints. She constantly puts her best foot forward, never saying, “I can’t,” or showing defeat when tasks are difficult.

Even when uncertain of a solution, Drew still takes the academic risks needed and remains positive when problem-solving and sharing her ideas. Thank you Drew, for your positive energy and the tremendous contributions you make to our classroom community.

When Sophie Robertson enters a room, it’s always with a smile on her face. Her positive attitude and bubbly personality affect everyone around her. Sophie attacks whatever task she is given with a desire to complete it to the best of her ability. What a great addition to our middle school this year. Congratulations, Sophie!

Ben Michel displays a positive attitude no matter the challenges he faces. Whether it’s a test day in AP Literature, or he’s lending a helping hand in National Honor Society, he has a smile on his face and a positive thought in his words. Not only does his amazing sense of style set him apart from his peers, but his positive attitude makes him a stand out human being.
