8th Grade, Nominated by Mrs. Griner
Mikele is a new student this year. You would never know it though. She has made many new friends. This may be because she demonstrates so many qualities we strive for at MMS. Mikele is caring. She is quick to compliment others. She is genuinely happy for others' success and doesn't speak negatively about anyone. Mikele is principled. She comes into class quietly and on time. She makes the most of every minute in class and if she doesn't finish, she takes it home to complete. She is prepared with a planner, pencil, and library book every day. Mikele is open-minded. In class, 8th graders learn to see different points of view. Goals for 8th graders include being able to write an argument essay where different perspectives are supported with evidence. Mikele is able to think about and accept different viewpoints. Mikele is deserving of this honor because of her work ethic and good nature. She is a pleasure to know and teach. Mikele sets a good example for all of us.
