Mrs. Lowry chose Jada Jones for Student of the Month. She felt that “Jada always puts forth her best effort in class and works very hard to excel academically.”
Jones loves to swim and read on her free time. She said that she has been having a great time at the 9th grade. She thinks that the best part about the 9th grade campus is that it is just 9th graders. She said it helps that you aren’t mixed in with the upper campus so that you get the chance to get used to high school.
During Jones’s interview she stated that she shows Trojan Pride in her everyday school day by helping people whenever they need it and getting her work done. Jones feels that her peers can do the right thing by choosing pride everyday. She expressed that students “should actually understand what it means rather than just knowing it is the school’s slogan”.
Jones said that her favorite class is Mrs. Lowry’s. When we asked her why she thought that she was chosen as Student of the Month she said that it is because she always pays attention and when she doesn’t understand something she communicates with her.
The next time you see Jones you should follow her school pride.
Mrs. Dexter chose Joan Barber as her Student of the Month and stated that “It [was her] pleasure to nominate Joan Barber as student of the month.

Her work ethic and focus on doing well in school is an inspiration to her classmates. Joan is always willing to help her peers without being asked. These attributes make Joan a wonderful example to all. Great job, Joan!”
Barber doesn’t join in on many school activities, but said she likes to go outside and play with her puppy.
When asked what advice she had for her classmates regarding Trojan Pride, she replied with “do your work and be nice to others.”
Barber said that Mrs. Dexter was her favorite teacher because Mrs.Dexter inspires her to learn this year and not to play around.

He has shown leadership and dependability throughout the time that I have known him. It is because of these characteristics that I have nominated Michael.
