b-banner-STUDENT OF THE WEEK.JPG
2018.02.16_Emily Burger_LEARNING.jpg

The Student of the Week this week is EMILY BURGER for demonstrating the GWCS value of LEARNING.

Emily loves to learn.  As a result of this, she has improved her grades substantially. Emily's recipe for success is as follows:  1) She is always focused and diligent in class.  2) She has a positive attitude that is infectious.  3) She strives to get the most out of every assignment or activity.  4) She is not afraid to ask questions to get better and better at something she is learning, and she pays close attention, taking the best notes that you can find.  Organization and dedication have helped Emily come a long way. One of her teachers said that she is a student “who keeps her nose to the grindstone on every assignment that she is given”. Also, Emily is a great team player.  She is kind enough to help peers when they need extra help and is an excellent individual to have in any group where collaboration is important.   Another example of what makes Emily great is her strong commitment to our stellar girls’ basketball team. She has truly flourished this year learning to be a better basketball player and practicing hard at improving her killer shot.  Emily is just starting to show her full potential and truly personifies what it means to be an avid learner in our GWCS community.

Check out the 'Student of the Week' bulletin board near Mr. Pereira's classroom. Each week a student is recognized for his or her demonstration of one of the eight GWCS Values.

GWCS VALUES: LEARNING, SERVICE, KINDNESS, EXCELLENCE, RESPONSIBILITY, INVESTMENT, TEAM PLAY, INTELLECTUAL CURIOSITY
