“Rongyi is an intelligent, serious, hard working young student whom I am very proud to say is a ours! He takes on every assignment with deliberate effort and works until he succeeds. This young man acts with respect for himself and others and is a silent role model for his peers who wish to achieve his level of focus and self discipline. With students like Rongyi Zhu in attendance Montabella has little to fear for its future!”

Chase Burggren(8th grade): nominated by Mr. Lehman

Chase Burggren, SOTM

“Chase has made tremendous strides this year, and is focused on improving his areas of weakness in ELA. Chase is a passionate and conscientious learner who not afraid to ask for help and direction. I especially like his approach to daily tasks because he slows down now and thinks things through much better than in the past. Chase is also showing signs of taking his writing more seriously. I am anxious to see what the remainder of the year brings out in him”
