Homelink Student of the Week

Week 1: Brittany Hall

I am awarding the first "Homelink Student of the Week" honor to Brittany Hall for the week of January 15th. While I have quite a few students who work very hard and have a great attitude, Brittany stands out a bit above the rest because she has the highest grade in my Marine Biology class and the second-highest grade in my Advanced Biology class. So she exceeds expectations in not one but two advanced science courses, and she does it with a smile on her face. I have taught Brittany for many years. Her attitude about education is exceptionally positive. If something is difficult or she doesn't succeed at something, she asks for help and tries harder. She takes pride in her work and is willing to take constructive criticism and learn from her mistakes. All the while she is a team player, working well with classmates and doing her share in group lab work. As a senior this year, Brittany offers an excellent example for younger Homelink students to follow. ~Mrs. Lisa Hummel, Science Teacher

Homelink Student of the Week

Week 2: Max Eddy and Magnus Harris

My student of the week is to be shared by Magnus Harris and Max Eddy. And what makes them the students of the week? Well, this is literature class, and although there is not much debate on whether two plus two equals four, or whether water is composed of hydrogen and oxygen, or whether Chili is in South America, there is plenty of controversy on whether Austen is to be preferred over Dickens, whether Milton is still relevant and just how accurate are Shakespeare's history plays anyway? Magnus and Max are great discussion starters and keep the interest up in class discussions with opinions, ideas, reflections and theories. Literature teachers thrive on thought sparks that fly around the room until another student catches one and throws it out again. Max and Magnus not only begin the dialog, but help it flourish. ~Mrs. Carleen Mathiesen, British Literature instructor

Homelink Student of the Week

Week 3: CALE BOWMAN and KIRA GRAVES!

Cale Bowman deserves to be recognized as Star Student of the Week in the area of Science. Science is about observing closely, paying attention to details and looking for patterns. It is also about remaining open-minded to new ways of looking at information which you may already know. This can sometimes lead to important discoveries. Cale practices these things. He inquires, he thinks, and he reflects on information. He also knows that sometimes explanations for how things work are not always easy or quick to obtain. Cale has the patience to hang in there and continue thinking about a problem. Recently Cale asked if he could bring in his snap-circuit kit to class since we were doing experiments with electricity. He did an excellent job demonstrating circuits. It's a real benefit to have Cale in the class. ~Jeff Bader, Homelink Science Teacher

Kira Graves is my choice for Star Student in the area of Art. She not only has the talent, but she has the focus. Kira applies what she is learning in class to her work. She has the patience to learn sequential drawing principles and the more careful drafting side of the arts in combination with the ability to think outside the box--to use creative thinking to plan and design her ideas. Growing in self-discipline as an artist doesn't stifle your creativity; rather, it enhances it. Kira also works on drawings in her free-time outside of class and is not afraid to share this work in class which can serve as inspiration for others. ~Jeff Bader, Homelink Art Teacher

Homelink Student of the Week

Week 4: XAVIER TESSEREAU!

Xavier Tessereau is a student who makes going above and beyond the call of duty with his schoolwork a way of life! He both listens and communicates clearly and shows respect to students and adults alike. He follows directions AND adds great creative ideas to distinguish his projects both in art and language arts. He has consistently won awards at our SHARE Art Fair and earned 2749 points for his fall language arts total when only 1200 were required for an A!

I'm often trying to get students to believe in their ideas enough to follow through on the work required to bring them to completion, and Xavier makes a huge effort in this direction, sometimes doing extra work outside of class time!

~Mrs. Lisa Bader, Art Teacher

Homelink Student of the Week

Week 5: Emily Bowman

My pick for student of the week is Emily Leon. She is a great student. She shows up on time to class, always has her homework completed and asks pertinent questions. Emily not only puts a lot of effort into her work, but she is always polite and is a joy to have as a student. ~Mrs. Lisa Musick, English teacher

Homelink Student of the Week

Week 6: EMILY LEON!

My pick for student of the week is Emily Leon. She is a great student. She shows up on time to class, always has her homework completed and asks pertinent questions. Emily not only puts a lot of effort into her work, but she is always polite and is a joy to have as a student. ~ Mrs. Gwen Musick, English teacher

Homelink Student of the Week

Week 7: Gideon Fugman!

Gideon Fugman is my student of the week. He is always willing to volunteer to do improvisations or any other project we have going on. He is respectful to me and to other students. He is not only talented, but hard working.
~Amanda Oliver, Drama Teacher

Homelink Student of the Week

Week 8: Jada and Sharlotte Jacobs

My star students this week are Jada and Sharlotte Jacobs. In Introduction to Composition and Literature they put in the extra work to complete their assignments thoroughly. Comprehension questions are well-answered. Vocabulary words are defined with thorough dictionary definitions, then used in interesting sentences that make the meaning of the word clear. In their compositions they have each demonstrated their creative side but have also chosen research assignments throughout the year. Assignments are rarely ever late. The girls are respectful, helpful, and great participants in class discussions. ~ Mrs. Becca Hubbard, English teacher

Homelink Student of the Week

Week 9: Dawson Maxey

My choice for Star Student of the Week is
Dawson Maxey.

Dawson has exemplified enthusiasm and diligence
in his participation, homework and projects in my Applied Math class. He's a delight to have as a student and an outstanding example of a scholar.
~Mrs. Arryn Groom, Applied Math teacher

Homelink Student of the Week

Week 10: Belle Perjak and Phoebe Bergt

Belle Perjak is my elementary Star Student of the week. She was chosen for her increased effort and participation. Because of this, Belle shows a greater understanding of the material and can apply this knowledge in a thoughtful manner. This has greatly enhanced her classroom discussion participation.
Way to go, Belle! ~Mrs. Sandy Arneson, Mystery of History teacher

Phoebe Bergt is my high school student of the week. She was chosen for tackling a class that she wasn't certain about. Phoebe has approached class with a confident attitude, and it is obvious that home time has been devoted to careful discussion of class concepts. Phoebe can reach a well-thought-out conclusion by putting together input from home, reading, and class. Nice job, Phoebe! ~Mrs. Sandy Arneson, American Government teacher

Homelink Student of the Week

Week 11: Maddie Villagrana

Madison Villagrana is my pick for student of the week!
Madison always goes above and beyond for her photography assignment. She reads all the material, then researches it for a greater understanding.
Madison consistently turns her assignments in on time. She is very attentive in class and actively participates in class discussions. ~Mrs. Pam Weatherford, Photography teacher

Homelink Student of the Week

Week 12: Hannah and Nathan Donaldson

My students of the week are Hannah and Nathan Donaldson. Hannah and Nathan are model students. They are polite, kind, and well-mannered. They always turn their work in on time, and it is always done in a creative and well-thought out manner. They are both excellent students who always have something interesting to contribute to class. They have a great disposition, and always greet me and their peers with a smile and a kind word. I think very highly of Hannah and Nathan, and am proud to say they are my students of the week. ~Mrs. Alexandra Pelekanou, Spanish teacher

Homelink Student of the Week

Week 13: Ellie Oliver

One of Oscar Hammerstein II’s well-known quotes is “If you become a teacher, by your pupils you’ll be taught.” That line is also in The King and I – check it out! Which brings me to my student of the week. She could be student of the year, really. Miss Ellie Oliver. Ellie, I hope you’ve learned a thing or two from me this year, because I have learned from you. Here are two examples: A fairy tale can have a happy ending for everyone, not just for the good guys. Foreshadowing in a novel is not always so obvious. Well, I might have known that one, but you pointed out some great examples! Here is a thought-provoking comment that Ellie wrote on Rikki Tikki Tavi from The Jungle Book: “Though I’m not by any means a fan of snakes I thought it was a bit unfair that Nag and Nagaina were written as evil characters. It seemed a bit stereotypical to me. Though some animals have a wicked way of life in our eyes, it’s just their instinct to be the way they are.” Ellie, I hope and pray for all the best for you in the future. ~Mrs. Carleen Mathiesen, British Literature Teacher
