November West Monona HS Students of the Month
Ms. Brockman for Kristina Schild - Kristina comes to choir every day with a smile on her face. She has come to every lesson she’s been scheduled for and has a positive attitude every day. She really brings light to our class and a light to my day each morning. She is also a very positive role model for other students in the classroom.
Mr. DeRocher for Sara Maule - Most students look for easy ways out. It is amusing when a student approaches me and tells me they have their math credits and are done with math. I also hear students say that they are getting all of their math done so that they can have an easy senior year. Then, there are those students that choose the more difficult path now to make the future easier. Sara has chosen to not only to take every math course we offer, which includes Calculus this year but is also doubling up and taking an online college math course. For this reason, Sara is my selection for the student for the month of November.
Mr. Donnelly for Novie Stanislav - Novie is recognized for her quiet spirit, determined purpose, and the responsibility showcased by her school work.
Mrs. Doorenbos for Hannah Miller - Hannah has a great work ethic in class and comes prepared to learn. She puts in extra effort to study for quizzes and asks questions during class when she needs help. She challenges herself and doesn't just give up when she gets too tough problems. I appreciate her attitude in math class!
Mrs. Fox-O’Reilly for Trevor Storm - “When we seek to discover the best in others, we somehow bring out the best in ourselves.” - William Arthur Ward Thank you for your leadership in the classroom, Trevor Storm, and for bringing out the best in others.

Mr. Groves for Aiden Bosanek - Aiden has earned this honor because of an outstanding work ethic. Quality work on a challenging project and his willingness to help others whenever they need it.

One of the first to arrive and last to leave, Evan takes pride in keeping the weight room clean and looking good when everyone else has left.

She comes in to get help when confused, completes work before deadlines, comes in early in the mornings when needed, creates study tools that many classmates utilize and has an upbeat attitude throughout the class. She demonstrates a great work ethic each day that will only benefit her and add to her success after high school! Keep up the hard work Emma! It does not go unnoticed!

Mr. Stegge for Reid Reicks - Reid has consistently shown his desire to learn while at school. This year with projects he has put in the extra effort to truly understand complex topics of science that were the basis for Nobel Prizes in the past.

He has grown into a more concrete thinker which will lead to success in college
