DOVER-FOXCROFT — Each month the SeDoMoCha School recognizes “Students in the Spotlight,” celebrating pupils from kindergarten to grade 8 who teachers and staff have determined best demonstrate a specific positive attribute or characteristic chosen for the timeframe from the Habits of Mind (a set of life skills for educators and parents). Following a snow day last month, the February and March Students in the Spotlight were honored together during an all-school assembly in the gym on the morning of March 14.

Principal Adam Gudroe welcomed family and friends of the more than 20 Students in the Spotlight — most of whom did not know these guests were invited. He said the February Students in the Spotlight all have shown “creating, imagining and innovating, and this month is questioning: asking good questions, demonstrating curiosity and finding problems to solve. I know that’s something many of you do well.”
