Prairie Heights names students of the month


On Feb. 10, Prairie Heights Middle School students, parents, and staff celebrated the fourth student of the month convocation of the 2011-2012 year.  

January’s Students of the Month, by grade, are: Sam Sheets, 8th grade; Justin Sutera, 8th grade; Austin Shepard, 7th grade; Audrey Hayward, 7th grade; John Claudy, 6th grade; Lauren McCollum, 6th grade; Elijah Norris, 5th grade; and Larissa Rigsby, 5th grade.

PHMS Students of the Month are chosen by their teachers based on effort, citizenship, and academic progress. These eight students were honored in a school-wide convocation which parents of the honorees were also invited to attend. These students received words of praise, certificates, Panther Pride items such as water bottles, pens and dog tags, as well as community donated prizes.

Another 20 students, five from each grade level, were recognized for individual situations where they gave their personal best. All students who receive personal best slips are entered in a drawing at the end of the year for a $50 gift card.

To date, Prairie Heights Middle School has honored a total of 348 students for their positive contributions.
