The Miamisburg City School District March Student of the Month is Marco Powell. Marco is a first grader at Mark Twain Elementary School who was nominated by his teacher Emily Skapik. Ms. Skapik said "Marco Powell is an exemplary student who has a positive influence on all of his peers. This is why I have nominated him as Mark Twain's student of the month because he represents Asset #15: Positive Peer influence.
Marco comes to school everyday ready to learn. He is quick to enter the classroom with a smile, follows all routines and expectations, and gets to work right away. This carries on throughout each and every day. I have never had to ask Marco to put in his best effort because he does it without hesitation in everything that he does. Recently, he decided to challenge himself by picking a chapter book to read and keeps it in a special spot in the classroom to go back to when he finishes his work. This is an example of how hard he always works and that he never finds himself "bored" or "off task." He is always able to find something to improve himself.
Marco is also always lending a helping hand. He is quick to help others and always asks if he can be a "helper." He helps with anything whether that be with picking up a school box that spilled, helping another student solve a problem, or finding something to help me with. He does this because he wants to help, not for recognition or because someone told him to.
He has been a positive influence on his peers by being a role model student as well as following our four keywords: respect, responsibility, problem solving, and peace making. He also makes sure to give his friends reminders to follow these four key words as well.
I have been very fortunate to have Marco as a student this year in my class because of his unwavering work ethic, his caring and helpful demeanor, and his fun, sense of humor. Without a doubt, Marco represents a positive peer influence for Mark Twain Elementary and Miamisburg as a whole. He is most definitely an "asset" to our schools. This is why I am recommending that Marco Powell is recognized as the March Student of the Month".
