BIG SKY – Big Sky School District honored four students for their cooperation this December as part of its Student of the Month/Terrific Kids of the Month program.

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. There wasn’t a high school student chosen in December.

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 middle and high school students chosen get pizza from Blue Moon Bakery.

Read the teachers’ praises for those honored below.

K-2 Terrific Kid of the Month, December 2012:

For the Month of December we would like to congratulate Marley Schack as the Terrific Student of the Month.

Marley is a positive role model in the classroom and is always willing to help her classmates and teachers. She is always cooperating with other students
and helping her classmates to make good choices. We can always count on Marley to lead by example with exceptional behavior! Congratulations Marley.

3-5 Terrific Kid of the Month, December 2012:

Ben Quackenbush. Cooperation in its truest sense is a group working towards a common goal. Therefore the goal of a 4th grade classroom is to work cooperatively to achieve academic, emotional and human success. Ben Quackenbush has demonstrated leadership qualities to help contribute to this class-wide objective. He has been a cooperative member who leads by example, not words. He helps us see the benefits of the whole group, not himself. Ben encourages others to participate and is open and receptive to new ideas. Thank you Ben and thank you to the 4th grade for dedicating your time at school to reach common goals that will help us become the leaders of tomorrow.

Middle School Student of the Month, December 2012:

Chloee Beardsley. Chloee is an outstanding example of cooperation. She takes cooperation to a new level, not only with teachers but with peers and younger students. Chloee is the first to help, to volunteer, to work it out, to take it on, basically to demonstrate that working with others, whether adults or students, creates an atmosphere of supportiveness and helpfulness.

Thank you Chloee for setting an example for those around you.
