Montabella Jr/Sr High School Students of the Month

Sadie Quackenbush, (7th grade), nominated by Mr. Gormley

Sadie Quackenbush, SOTM March

“Sadie has done a wonderful job this semester in all three classes that I have her for during the day. She is always willing to help other students with things in tech/advisory/band and always puts for her best effort on all assignments/tasks she has been given.”

Tristin Decker, (8th grade): nominated by Mr. Champion

Tristin Decker, SOTM March

“Tristin is a very interesting and unique student who stands out in the crowd, and not because of his red hair. He stands out because he is able to show his teachers and peers a measure of maturity and respect that you don't usually see in an 8th grader. He does this and still has a great sense of humor. Another way that he stands out is that he has a plan, a goal for his future. He says that he has always wanted to be an architect and he knows that to do this he has to make improvements with his academics. He has been doing this well, and I can see him becoming an architect someday.”

Hannah Willis, (9th grade), nominated by Mr. Gormley

Hannah Willis, SOTM March

“Hannah has been doing a wonderful job learning what it means to lead a section this year. She was tasked with at the beginning of the year to learn as much as she can from the two departing seniors who have led the saxophone section the last couple of years and she has done a wonderful job in learning how to lead as well as becoming a very good saxophone player in the process. She is always willing to help others out and is sure to be one of Montabella's finest when she graduates in a couple of years.”

Morgan Christensen, (10th grade), nominated by Mrs. Dreyer-Molitor

Morgan Christensen, SOTM March

“Morgan is a very meticulous and conscientious student who always seeks to understand what is expected of her, and then she goes above and beyond. If she has to miss class to participate in one of her student leadership events, she always finds out ahead of time what she will need to do in order to stay on top of her assignments. I very much enjoy having her in class!”

Brayden LeFever, (11th grade), nominated by Mr. Gormley

Brayden LeFever, SOTM March

“Brayden has done a wonderful job improving his playing of the baritone this semester. I have always known he could play, if and when I could get him to give me his best(and not talk with his neighbors). This semester he has given me his best and it shows when the band performs. He has gone from just a person willing to play his part to one who cares about playing his part well not only in rehearsals but also in our performances.”

Brooke Wright, (12th grade), nominated by Mr. Sprau

Brooke Wright, SOTM March

“Brooke is a hard worker, an effective organizer and a dedicated artist. She has a mature attitude and has been doing a stellar job working towards her senior project goal. She is an absolute pleasure to have in class.”
