Sixth grade Student of the Month named

The sixth grade team has nominated Sarah Gamble as the student of the month for September 2012.

The sixth grade team has numerous comments to share about their star student. She is an excellent role model for the sixth grade class as well as NMS. She is very attentive and a great listener. She is well organized and a focused young lady. She enters the middle school with a positive attitude and a smile on her face on a daily basis. She puts effort forth in all of her classes, and always utilizes her time well throughout the day. She sets a positive example for her peers to follow. They appreciate her hard work and dedication at NMS.

She is the daughter of Paul and Stephanie Gamble. Sarah's favorite class is science because she loves that scientific feeling that she gets when she learns something new! Learning about everything scientific brightens her day. One of her strengths is reading AR!

Some of her hobbies and extracurricular activities are singing, listening to music, and reading.

She also loves playing fantasy games with her twin sister, Rachel.

The best thing about Newcomerstown Middle School is that you can be yourself.

You don't have to worry about people making fun of you for being smart. The best piece of advice that she has ever received was from her dad who said, "It doesn't matter what others think, it only matters what you think." In the future, she hopes to make the honor roll and eventually go to college to be a paleontologist. So far in her life, her greatest accomplishment is getting third place in a Reading Rainbow Contest.
