Students of the Month are selected by their teachers for criteria such as outstanding citizenship and academic performance. Dunton said some of this month’s honorees have been working hard in the classroom all year long even when tasks get difficult, often volunteer to help their teacher, are “a good friend to everyone and sticks up for others,” have already finished a math program, turned in every assignment on time all year long and more.

The nine newest Students of the Month at PCES are fifth-graders Donald Farnham and Caleb McKusick; Jordan Brown representing grade 6; grade 7 students Scott Chadbourne, Zach Demmer and Emily Easler; and eighth-graders Samantha Goodwin, Julia Munson and Dawson Simpson.
