Some quotes from staff:

"I'm so happy to hear that Emme Hale is selected for Student of the Month. It's hard to believe it was 5 years ago that she was in my third grade class over at Mitchell. The 8-year old Emme was a hard worker who set high expectations for herself. She was always a positive role model for her peers and treated everyone with kindness and respect. From what I hear, all these positive qualities haven't changed a bit. I do have to put in a plug that I love watching her play basketball too. A leader on and off the court!"

"As a coach of Emme's in soccer for years I can tell you that she gives all of herself and does a great job at showing proper sportswomanship during athletics. As a community member with a daughter who is very friendly with Emme, she is always a welcomed guest in our home as she is polite and exhibits refreshing manners."

"Emme is a wonderful writer, a conscientious student, an engaged learner in the classroom, and a role model for her peers. I enjoyed teaching her and I am proud of her continued success in school."

"Emme has always been a driven, hard working student. But she also maintains a great attitude and is willing to help teachers and kids. She takes her work and athletics seriously, but she also has a kind heart for helping others. It has been a pleasure to watch her grow and mature into such a wonderful student over the years. She is well deserving of this award."
