Each school month, the Fairfield Elks Lodge sponsors the Fairfield Middle School “Students of the Month” award to acknowledge positive contributions of students at school.
The Students of the Month certificates are awarded after a nomination and voting process is completed by each grade-level teaching team.
The students honored in September were:
Fifth-grader Luke Thornton, whose certificate states “He is a very responsible student and is always thinking ahead. He puts his best effort into his work and is always willing to help his classmates in times of need.”
Fifth-grader Jamie Martin’s certificate states she “has had a great start to the year. She is a hard worker in class and is always putting forth her best effort. She is kind and caring to other students in our class. Jamie is a great example of what Trojan PRIDE should look like.”
Sixth-grader Iris Lane’s certificate states she “displays a great work ethic and attitude, striving to do her best at all times. Iris is a quiet leader in the classroom and is willing to help her classmates as well as any adult that needs help.”
Sixth-grader Colt Boyles’s certificate states he “is always willing to lend a helping hand to everyone in class. He always brings a positive energy and smile to class! He is doing a phenomenal job transitioning to a new school.”
Seventh-grader Dominick Wallace’s certificate states he is “a hard-working student ... Not only is he hard-working, but he is focused and takes his learning seriously.
