For the month of May, three students have been selected as Students of the Month. Mrs. Cline, sixth grade language arts teacher, chose sixth grader Dylan Little.

Mr. Marsh, seventh grade and eighth grade social studies teacher, nominated seventh grader Joy McCune, and Mr. Hamilton, eighth grade intervention teacher, selected eighth grader Mitchell Meeks.

Mrs. Cline chose Dylan Little, son of Brian and Harriett Little, because she appreciates that he is respectful to his teachers and peers. On a daily basis, he strives to do his best in everything that he attempts. She commented that he has had zero homework pink slips all year. Language arts class is enjoyable for Little because Mrs. Cline is very nice and has her students do many fun things. Little also enjoys playing football and wrestling. According to him, his greatest achievement in life is going to state for wrestling three times.

According to Mr. Marsh, Joy McCune, daughter of Tonya Armstrong and Cliff McCune, deserves to be Student of the Month because he knows that he can always count on her to have a smile on her face and a cheery "Hello" when she enters his classroom. In addition, she is always prepared for class and eager to participate. McCune finds social studies class to be enjoyable because she likes to learn about history. She also likes to play baseball and softball and participate in the band. Someday, she hopes to become a professional baritone player.

Even though Mitchell Meeks, son of Steve and Shelly Meeks, is not a student in Mr. Hamilton's class, Mr. Hamilton has recognized that Meeks is "a great example of a student/athlete." He works hard in the classroom, displays a positive attitude, and excels athletically. Mr. Hamilton wishes him all the best as he begins his high school career.

Some of his interests include football, wrestling, track, hunting and fishing. The best advice Meeks has ever received came from Jack Lenhoff, his wrestling coach, who said, "Respect everyone; fear no one." In his eyes, his greatest achievement so far in life is breaking the pole vault record.

Everyone at NMS congratulates these three Students of the Month and wish them further success in life. Mr. Peoples will treat them to lunch at Terry's Pizza Shoppe, and their information sheets and pictures will be displayed on the bulletin board outside the office.
