She is well-behaved and has an extremely scientific mind. She is smart and respectful at all times. Her cheerful disposition is contagious. Kallison is polite, respectful, well-behaved, turns in most work, and is an overall joy to be around.

The seventh grade male Student of the Month is Jesus Salazar. His teacher’s say Jesus is well-behaved and respectful in class. His focus and motivation academically have gotten stronger as he progressed through his seventh grade year. They believe that his eighth grade year is going to be great. For example, when he sees his grade gets low, he takes the initiative to bring it up and stay on top of his success.  He puts in effort to complete make-up assignments, and even shouldered some extra work when his partner was absent during a project. He is a wonderful role model
