Terrific Kids

Terrific Kids is a student-recognition program that promotes character development, self-esteem, and perseverance. “Terrific” is an acronym for Thoughtful, Enthusiastic, Respectful, Responsible, Inclusive, Friendly, Inquisitive and Capable.

Mrs. Maust: Adeline Dekorver

Adeline is a Terrific Kid because she is a hard worker and eager to learn new things. She always comes to school with a smile on her face and is always on time. She loves to participate in all activities we do in class. She loves to help her teacher and friends no matter how hard the task is, she always tries her best. She is ALWAYS polite and always uses her matters. Adeline is going to be a wonderful kindergartener next year. Keep up the great work.

Ms. Delashmet's Class: Alana Roeder

This student is always here and on time. She is always prepared for class. She works hard and does her best. She follows the rules and directions the first time they are given. She has made an amazing amount of growth in Math since the beginning of the year. She is friendly, kind and respectful to her classmates and staff. It is a pleasure to have Alana Roeder in my kindergarten class. Keep up the good work Alana!

Mrs. Hudgens' Class: Blayne Taylor

Blayne is an excellent example of a “Terrific Kid.” He comes to school eager to learn.

Blayne participates in class lessons and always strives to do his best on his classwork and

homework. Blayne has worked extremely hard and has improved greatly as a reader.

It’s not uncommon to hear him encouraging himself and others to keep going. He is very

thoughtful and respectful as he works with classmates with kindness and cooperation. He

offers help and is a good friend to everyone. Blayne continually follows classroom and

school rules making him a model school citizen. We are so lucky to have Blayne in our

class. He is truly an example to follow!

Ms. Rensberger's Class: Tristan Gentry

Tristan is a sweet and hard working young man. Every time he comes through the door he has a smile on his face. He loves to share stories with the class. He is a great friend to all. He works hard on every assignment and gives it all if he doesn't understand. He will keep asking questions until he has a firm grasp of the work that he is doing. This is why Tristan is this nine weeks terrific kid.

Mrs. Miles' Class: Michael Stine

The choice for a Terrific Kid in second grade was easy. This kid is thoughtful and considerate of others. He is enthusiastic and never grumbles about work. He has respect for others and is responsible. He is always at school and is never late. When he plays, he includes everyone. He is a model for the other students. He helps others and is always willing to lend a hand. When given directions, he listens and obeys the first time he is told. For these reasons, Michael Stine is the Terrific Kid for second grade for the second quarter. Congratulations, Michael Stine!

Mrs. Breit's Class: Cody Cowart

chose Cody as the terrific kid for the second nine weeks for several reasons. First, he practices good attendance and is always on time and ready to start our day of learning. Next, Cody is a role model for his peers in class and throughout the campus. He displays a strong work ethic. He completes his work neatly and perseveres through challenging skills. He is also willing to help others if he is finished with his work. He also shows the traits of honesty and kindness. Honesty is not always an easy trait for people to exhibit, but I know I can depend on Cody to be truthful, even if it is hard. Finally, he is a strong leader that leads by example and does not sway from his values or what he knows to be right. He is cheerful, friendly, and respectful in class and anywhere he goes on campus. Those are all of the reasons why I chose Cody to be the Terrific Kid for the second nine weeks. I truly appreciate all that Cody adds to our class as a student, and a friend to his peers.

Mrs. Davis' Class: Stephen Lowery

The student I have chosen as Terrific Kid exemplifies all the qualities of a true “Terrific Kid”. He is thoughtful to everyone, enthusiastic about learning new content, respectful to staff and other students, responsible for completing assignments, inclusive and kind to others, inquisitive and curious about learning, and capable of completing tasks as given. His kindness, manners and genuine concern for others makes him a great Terrific Kid. I am proud to nominate Stephen Lowery as my Terrific Kid for the 2nd 9 weeks of the 2020-2021 school year.

Mrs. Krohn's Class: Jake Culverson

My terrific kid for the 2nd 9 weeks is Jake Culverson. Jake has grown a lot this year. He has learned how to manage stressful situations and used coping skills to change the behavior of those situations. He has also shown leadership skills in the class and uses them to assist other students when needed. Jake might need a reminder or two to keep up his leadership in the class but gets back on track quickly. This is a fantastic improvement from where he began. Jake is always friendly to his classmates and is there to lend a helping hand. He also always participates in classroom discussions and completes his work. Jake is also quick to bring a laugh to the classroom. Jake I have enjoyed getting to know you and seeing your bright personality shine through. Please always stay the natural leader you are and keep reaching for the stars. Congratulations Jake I am very proud of you!

Mrs. Slayton's Class: Elax Woods

Elax is a true example of a Terrific Kid. Elax is always prepared for class. He always comes to class with all of the supplies needed and completes any homework. Elax is also respectful to both adults and his peers. Any time that I have a question, he always responds with “yes ma’am”, “no ma’am” or any other polite response. He also never complains about lending a helping hand to anyone. Elax also avoids all drama! I have loved having Elax in my class the first half of this year, and I cannot wait to see what we can accomplish in the second half!
