March's Stockton Middle School students of the month for the character word focus are 5th grade - Taylor Handzo, 6th grade - Trevor Swaggerty, 7th grade - Gracie Abercrombie, and 8th grade - Elizabeth Atkinson. These students received a $50 Walmart gift card courtesy of the Stockton Sertoma Club. 5TH - Taylor Handzo Taylor exhibits the character trait of FOCUS daily. It doesn't matter what she is doing, she gives her full attention to it. Whether it is schoolwork or play, she is focused on it. She also has a gift for keeping others focused when necessary. I appreciate Taylor's work ethic and her willingness to help others, as well. Taylor is a very studious individual. She is committed to learning and pays close attention to each step of the process. It is this focus that makes her a great partner to help those students that are struggling. Taylor is not only studious, she is determined. She is naturally smart and organized but puts in the work as well. 6TH - Trevor Swaggerty Trevor is a student who is able to persevere no matter what is happening around him. He has an overall goal to be successful through good grades and increased knowledge and skills. Trevor is always on task and engaged, even when those around him choose not to be. He turns his assignments in on time and with the quality and expectation his teachers ask of him. Trevor asks questions, participates in discussions, and listens intently to what others have to say. His contributions to the overall learning of his environment is positive and earnest. Trevor has the ability to always stay focused on his task. He isn't easily distracted by other students' actions. He can always be counted on to do the right thing even when it's not popular. He is also a hard worker and is willing to help others. 7TH - Gracie Abercrombie Gracie is the epitome of the word focused. She is attentive and engaged in every classroom activity. Her work is always done above and beyond, follows directions very well and honestly, she listens so well, she rarely ever even has questions. Amazing and well-deserving. Gracie always pays attention and is focused in class. She knows what she is supposed to do and gets it done. She is very committed to getting her work done to the best of her ability. Gracie does her best on every assignment every time. 8TH - Elizabeth Atkinson Never once have I had to remind this student to get focused. Every day, she comes to class ready to learn and to complete her work. As a result of this habit, she excels in every classroom she enters. I am grateful that I can rely on her to be an example to her classmates. Elizabeth was great to have in class. She completed every assignment promptly and gave her projects 110%. I appreciated her staying "focused" even on our days off due to snow. She turned things in and asked questions if she needed to.
