7th Grade – Student of the Month – Jared Simmons

Everyday, in Google Classroom, Jared greets the class with  a “Good Morning” and a thoughtful Scripture quote.  In school, he always greeted everyone with a big smile.                                                                                                                        Jared is a gifted artist who always uses his talent to help others.  He makes sure that the class has all the artwork to make our projects successful. He works tirelessly at this.  In groups, he works quietly and diligently to see that the group succeeds.  Jared is polite and always helpful. He is very conscientious and has put much effort into the distance learning.  Congratulations, Jared!
