SEPTEMBER DISTRICT STUDENT OF THE MONTH IS MADISSON ADKINS
The Miamisburg City School District has selected 8th grader Madisson Adkins as the September Student of the Month. Madisson was nominated by Miamisburg Middle School Counselor Bonita Belton. Mrs. Belton explains why Madisson was chosen. "This month our focus was Developmental Asset #24 - Bonding to School. Madisson Adkins is the perfect candidate to be nominated for District Student of the Month. Madisson exemplifies “Bonding to School” in various ways both academically and socially.
Madisson is the type of person who lights up a room when she walks in. She always has a smile on her face and pleasantly greets everyone she comes in to contact with. She is a highly motivated academically and is dedicated to do her best in every class, every day. Miss Adkins has perfect attendance and Straight A’s. She is taking two advanced curriculum classes, Algebra and Spanish, with each of these courses earning her a high school credit while she is an Eighth Grade Student at Miamisburg Middle School.
At the end of last year, her 7th grade year, the administrators were seeking seventh grade students who were positive role models with good leadership skills to assist in the office as eighth graders. Mr. Wheat, our building principal, wanted to start a new program that would allow 8th grade students to assist in our Multi-Handicapped (MH) Classrooms. Due to her leadership skills and positive attitude she was Mr. Wheat’s first choice to start the new program. Madisson was excited about the opportunity and accepted the responsibility to spend one hour per day working with challenged students in our MH Unit. In the Unit she helps the other children complete their work assignments, works with them one on one, and teaches them basic life skills. Not only has Madisson helped the students start their school year off on a positive note, they have taught her many things as well. She recently shared that although the students she works with have more challenges and are not able to do many of the things their same age peers can do, they are very special and unique individuals. She said she really enjoys the time she has spent with the students in the MH Unit and has made many new friends.
Not only has Madisson done a fabulous job bonding to her school environment during the school day, she is an active athlete who currently runs on the Cross Country Middle School Team. She attends and works diligently from 3:00 - 5:00 at practice every day after school and runs with her teammates at the Saturday Cross Country Meets. She loves the time she spends with her teammates and she is well respected and loved by each team member as well as her coaches.
In conclusion, Madisson Adkins is the type of student that exemplifies Asset #24 - Bonding to School. She is a walking testimonial to being involved in her school community and demonstrates this each and every day with her overall positive attitude and willingness to work hard academically and physically. Madisson is well respected by her peers, teachers, and the administrative staff and is well deserving of the opportunity to be recognized as our district Student of the Month."

SHOES FOR WATER CAMPAIGN AT KINDER ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
Kinder staff cleaned out their closets of their gently used shoes to donate to the Shoes for Water campaign as part of the United States Air Force Marathon weekend of events. Shoes for Water is a non-profit organization that focuses on bringing water purification systems to developing countries.
Mrs. Diehl's 3rd grade students learned the importance of clean of water as a daily need. Students also read about how water purification systems save lives. Finally, students loaded bags of shoes for Mrs. Diehl to deliver to the Nutter Center at the Marathon Expo.
