Montabella Jr/Sr High School Students of the Month

Carly Bonasse(7th grade), nominated by Ms. Cook

Carly Bonasse, SOTM

“Carly is outgoing, follows directions, is respectful towards others, and always follows directions. She always tries her hardest in class and willingly works with other students. She is a great student to have at Montabella!”

Austin Foster(8th grade): nominated by Mr. Lehman

Austin Foster, SOTM

“Austin has grown tremendously as a person and a student. What is particularly striking to me is that now Austin recognizes his areas of weakness and legitimately strives to improve. He has a unique personality that also includes confidence with just the right amount of humility. He is fun because he is easy to engage with, can be playful (especially regarding his Spartans) and serious when it is warranted. Ultimately, Austin is more than just a capable student athlete. Even though we are almost half way through this semester, Austin continues to grow significantly. The is no limit to what Austin can do academically if he continues on this track. I have truly enjoyed having Austin as a student and I know that he will do great things in the years to come.”

Emily Terry(9th grade), nominated by Ms. Burggren

Emily Terry, SOTM

“Emily has worked very hard this semester to make sure she is succeeding in her classes. She is motivated and engaged on a daily basis. Emily also reaches out to her struggling peers to help them be successful. Emily always asks how my day is going and genuinely cares about the well-being of others. She often offers to work alongside a classmate to keep them on task and guide them through their work. She amazes me with her ability to draw pretty much anything, I can definitely see her pursuing a career in art. Regardless of what she does as an adult, her hardworking personality will help her be successful.”

Ryan Cook(10th grade), nominated by Ms. Dreyer-Molitor

Ryan Cook, SOTM

“Throughout the year, Ryan has consistently worked hard to improve his grade in English 10, completing his homework and taking advantage of reassessments. He is very respectful to his classmates and to me. It is great to have him in class.”

Hannah Willis(11th grade), nominated by Ms. Burggren

Hannah Willis, SOTM

“Hannah has always been a successful student, and this year is no exception. Her attention to detail, drive to be successful, and academic habits are reflected in her grade point average. Hannah is more than just an academic success, she is a person of strong character. Hannah is dependable, kind, humble, patient, and a whole list of other positive things that all basically boil down to the same thing....she is a good person. Watching Hannah grow over the years has been such a joy and I can't wait to see what she does as she continues to make her mark on the world.”

Brian Knapp(12th grade), nominated by Mr. Champion

Brian Knapp, SOTM

“Brian is probably one of the most respectful students I've met. He is currently doing his second semester in the PEER program and works closely with one of our students with autism. He does a great job doing this and always asks good questions. While observing Brian with his student in gym class last week; I realized that he was running the class. There was a sub teacher and sub parapro that day - sitting on the bench. He took about 20 middle school students and ran them through their warmups and the activity for that hour. He also made sure his PEER student was actively involved. Brian always does an amazing job! Thank you.”
