She is a hard-working student with a drive to always do her best. This is evident in her successes in school as well as in her extracurricular activities. Morgan is an exceptional student and a wonderful person as well. She always seems happy and helps to make the class a very positive environment. She is an asset to any peer group when doing group work. She includes everyone within the group and the other students gravitate to her for help and guidance with understanding of the concepts.
Morgan is a very positive and responsible person. She enjoys learning and shares the joy with the class and especially her peer groups. Morgan has made a great impression on her teachers with her positive attitude and wonderful work ethic. Morgan rises to the challenge and excels in all of her activities, while being well respected by her teachers and her peers.
One example of her wonderful attitude happened at the beqinninq of the year. Morgan moved to Ohio from Idaho, where she had already had Algebra 1. Not knowing the level of math, Edison had her take some placement tests. Even though she showed a lot of ability in Algebra, it was decided for her to take Honors Algebra. Instead of looking at the negatives of the decision, Morgan embraced the decision as a way to improve the Algebra skills that she already had. She enjoys learning and is a joy to have in the classroom.
Morgan just exemplifies everything you think of as a student of the month and yet this is her first year in the Edison Local Schools. She makes everyone smile, including teachers, staff and her classmates. With this pleasant, hard-working attitude, Morgan is a wonderful asset to the class of 2023. Therefore, we would highly recommend Morgan Moon for Edison Middle School's student of the month.
