Students of the Month named for February at PAMS
Sixth grader Matthew Everson, seventh grader Jackie Berg, and eighth grader Jacob Mackedanz were chosen as Students of the Month for February at Paynesville Area Middle School. |
Each month, teachers recognize three students in the middle school - one per grade - for their attention and work in school and their cooperation and relations with other students and the school staff.
All three students said they were surprised, shocked, or honored to receive the award. "Woo hoo!" was the reaction of Mackedanz, he said. Everson, the son of Doreen and Larry Everson, isn't sure why he won the award but said he loves math, reading, and English. He plays the tuba in the band and sings in the choir.
Eighth grader jacob Mackedanz, seventh grader Jackie Berg, and sixth grader Matthew Everson were chosen as the Students of the Month for February at Paynesville Area Middle School.
He really likes sports and card collecting, including baseball, basketball, football, Pokemon, and Yu-Gi-Oh cards.
His teachers said that Matthew is dedicated, friendly, hard-working, and inquisitive.
Berg, the daughter of Lori Hazelwood and Gordon Berg, thinks she won the award because she improved her grades. She plays volleyball and softball on school teams. Away from school, she likes to shop, watch movies, and hang out with friends.
Her teachers said that Jackie is a good student: friendly, responsible, and willing to help others.
Mackedanz, the son of Dale and Donna Mackedanz, isn't sure why he won the award either. He plays baseball and football on school teams.
