     It is my pleasure to nominate Haven Whitley for Pinedale Elementary School Student of the Month.  Haven is a fourth grade student that demonstrates many exceptional character traits.  Haven is a great role model for her classmates and very deserving of this award. 

     Haven exemplifies the growth mindset.  She approaches each subject area with an enthusiasm and determination that is unparalleled in our classroom.  Haven is not only an enthusiastic learner but also actively seeks feedback from her teachers.    She sets the example of how to take responsibility for your own learning.

In addition to a tremendous work ethic, Haven consistently makes good choices in all aspects of school.  Haven is respectful and polite to adults and peers in and out of the classroom.  Haven is also safe and responsible.  If Haven sees unsafe behavior occurring, she will let an adult know.

To Sublette County School District #1 Board Members:

It is my pleasure to introduce Pinedale Elementary Student of the Month, Zach Ferguson. He is the son of Josh Ferguson and Elizabeth Ferguson. He has an older sibling, Ben, in fifth grade and two younger siblings, Joey in second and Emmalyn in kindergarten. Along with being a very hardworking student, Zach loves to play soccer and spend time at the Pinedale Aquatic Center.

There are several reasons that I feel Zach is a very deserving recipient of our third grade student of the month award. The first thing 

that stands out about him is his enthusiasm for school. He comes every day, excited to learn and continually motivates his fellow classmates, helping them become more fully engaged in what we are doing.  Secondly, Zach has a great commitment to learning. He is always one of the first students prepared and ready to work on our daily activities; he is very driven to get his work done and to do it to the best of his ability. The final, and probably strongest reason I feel Zach is deserving of student of the month, is the growth mindset that he has demonstrated this year. There are some academic areas that are challenging to Zach and when something is difficult for him, he has learned to persevere and not give up. Because of this attitude, he has made an amazing amount of growth in these areas and is a wonderful example to his peers of what having a growth mindset can do.

I commend Zach for his attitude about learning and appreciate this opportunity to formally recognize him. He is a very deserving recipient of the Pinedale Elementary Student of the Month award.

Emma comes to school every day with a smile on her face, a positive attitude, and excitement to learn.

Dear SCSD #1 Board of Trustees: 

          It is my pleasure to introduce Micah Nutt for student of the month. Micah is a first grade student. She is the daughter of Gretta and Michael Nutt. She stands out as being a role model for other students both in and out of the classroom.

               Micah is a wonderful student because she is self motivated and helps to encourage others to be motivated to learn in our classroom. She tries hard on everything she works on, and if she has extra time, she finds a way to improve her work or bump it up to a higher level on her own. 

She loves to interact with the other students in our classroom in an academic focused way that respects their need to do their own thinking. Her empathetic natures allows her to interact with peers on an individual level and makes her learning meaningful to herself and others.

          In addition, Micah is respectful and friendly out of the classroom. She is always open to all kids outside at recess and is willing to play with kids when they are in need of a friend. To those close to her, she is understanding of their feelings and stands up for them when it is needed. She has empathy beyond her years and I am impressed daily.

          It is an honor to be Micah’s teacher and to be able to recognize Micah as Pinedale Elementary Student of the Month.
