The Miamisburg City Schools' January District Student of the Month is Landon Trupp. Landon is a first grader at Mound Elementary School who was nominated by his teacher Kim Supinger. Landon was chosen for best exemplifying Asset #22 - School Engagement - Young person is actively engaged in learning. Ms. Supinger wrote in her nomination "I feel that Landon Trupp is an excellent candidate for our district Student of the Month. He is an exceptional student, excelling with his academics as well as being a positive role model for his classmates. His peers voted him to be Student of the Month for our class at the beginning of the school year. Toward the end of that month, he was helping another boy in our class with a math skill. The other boy told me later that Landon had been helpful to him and he really did deserve to be Student of the Month. Landon is accepting of everyone in our class. During partner/group games, if he sees that a classmate does not have someone to play with, he can always be heard asking them to join his group. When we returned to school after Winter Break, I had my class make some goals for the New Year. Many of the children wrote about how they wanted to see a certain movie or go to Disneyworld. Landon’s goals were: Learn how to multiply; try to read ten books in five days; and never miss school. He is dedicated to his education, but he also has other interests. Landon plays football, basketball, and baseball for Miamisburg. When he is not playing sports he loves to fish, read, put puzzles together, draw, play Minecraft, and travel with his family. He is a wonderful brother, playmate, and best friend to his siblings. Landon is always cheerful and a joy to be around. He enjoys telling jokes and making people laugh. Landon is an amazing 7 year old. He is responsible, loving, caring, and fair. It is obvious he has a strong desire to do well and is willing to put forth the necessary effort to be successful in all areas of his life. He is certain to grow up to be a young man his parents and teachers can be proud of. The students and staff of Mound Elementary are lucky to have Landon as part of the Gopher family. He truly is an incredible example of being Respectful, Responsible, and Ready to Learn.”
