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 November for their ability to show empathy to classmates and teachers.
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.
K-2 Terrific Kid of the Month – Kindergarten student Sabine Hurlbut
Sabine Hurlbut is a very sweet and empathetic girl. As a kindergartner her awareness and ability to understand how others are feeling is amazing. Her care, concern, and the way she reaches out to others in need, in words and in actions, touches our heart. Nice work Sabine!
3-5 Terrific Kid of the Month – Fifth grade student Luke Kirchmayr
Luke would be a candidate for any award based on character, whether it be empathy, integrity, responsibility, perseverance – the list goes on and on. Luke is always setting an example and is a fantastic student. Good job Luke, and keep it up.
Ophir Middle School Student of the Month – Seventh grade student Isaac Gilmore
Isaac is a compassionate and caring young man who is continually sensitive to other students’ feelings. He has the ability to feel their thoughts and share his own. Often he is remiss in readily accepting compliments from students and teachers, as he would rather give compliments to others. Isaac is a nonviolent, non-aggressive person who would rather be a peacekeeper. In class, Isaac picks up after himself and protects the rights of others. Thanks Isaac for being our empathetic student of the month.
Lone Peak High School Student of the Month – 10th grade student Dasha Bough
Dasha Bough is the Lone Peak High School student of the month for empathy. Beyond her awesome, optimistic, and compassionate attitude is a person who is there for her friends. She is always ready to offer a helping hand, a listening ear, a shoulder to cry on, or a hand to high five. The best part is that Dasha is not shy about being an empathetic person. Thank you, Dasha, for being an outstanding person who is willing to be there for others.
