Montabella Jr/Sr High School Students of the Month

Jaylee Newcombe(7th grade), nominated by Ms. Cook

Jaylee Newcombe, SOTM

“Jaylee is a seventh grade student that shows many qualities that make her a model student. She follows directions, does quality work, completes her assignments on time, respects others, asks questions when needed, and helps out other students. We are fortunate to have Jaylee Newcombe at Montabella Schools!”

Ella Harris(8th grade): nominated by Mr. Lehman

Ella Harris, SOTM

“Ella's quiet demeanor is overshadowed by her focus and desire to succeed academically. She is a willing elbow partner regardless of the differences in outward behavior or personality. She always has her work done on time, it is flawlessly complete, and her attention to the expectations reflect her success in class. Although Ella maintains her stealthy appearance/s in class, my goal remains to crack the shell and get her to open up just a little bit more. I enjoy having Ella in my class and I am going to miss her next year.”

Alexis Jordan(9th grade), nominated by Ms. Burggren

Alexis Jordan, SOTM

“Lexi always has a sweet smile on her face and a positive attitude in class. She is kind to her fellow classmates and is willing to collaborate with any of her peers. Lexi can always be found doing the right thing, regardless of the influences around her. Lexi can brighten class with her playful personality, kind ways, and caring heart. With those traits, Lexi will positively influence the people she interacts with on a daily basis.”

MaLinda Johnston(10th grade), nominated by Mr. Urbanawiz

MaLinda Johnston, SOTM

“MaLinda is an excellent student who strives to do better in almost every aspect. She is constantly asking questions even if you can't always hear them. MaLinda is generally very quiet but when she is with her friends a whole new person comes out who is compassionate and funny.”

Roman Nickerson(11th grade), nominated by Ms. Burggren

Roman Nickerson, SOTM

“Roman is polite and helpful to those around him. He is attentive and engaged with all class content. Roman works diligently to maintain high grades while being dual enrolled in a college course. It does not matter who Roman is working with or what the assignment is, Roman does so without grumbling or complaining and with a positive attitude. I enjoy starting my day with his positive vibes and have enjoyed watching him mature into a successful young man.”

Cole Powell(12th grade), nominated by Mr. Krolczyk

Cole Powell, SOTM

“Since arriving at Montabella this fall, he has always been a productive and conscientious student. It could not have been easy switching schools at the beginning of one's senior year, but Cole made the adjustment with ease.”
