TFS names middle school Students of the Month for March

 
 

Faculty members at the Tallulah Falls School middle school have selected their fifth-, sixth- and seventh-grade students of the month for March.

The fifth-grade student of the month is Carsyn Griffis of Martin. “Carsyn was chosen for always being diligent in her classwork,” said fifth-grade math teacher Chrissy Van Hooser. “Carsyn is always kind to her classmates and always a help to her teachers. We love that she always has a smile on her face.”

The sixth-grade student of the month is Haygen James of Demorest. “Haygen was presented this award for her exceptional work in her academic classes,” said sixth-grade math teacher Annette Shirley. “She is a responsible student who leads by example and always displays a positive attitude and a good work ethic.”  


Two seventh-grade students received student of the month honors. The first is CJ Augustine of Demorest. “CJ is a polite and respectful young man who works hard in all subject areas,” said seventh-grade English teacher Kim McClurg. “His sense of humor also helps keep learning fun for his classmates and teachers. He has shown consistent improvement over the course of this year in all academic classes. In addition, as a member of the track team,  he understands what it means to be a scholar-athlete, prioritizing and doing what it takes to maintain his grades while playing a sport.”

Morgan Mullins of Demorest was also named a seventh-grade student of the month. “Morgan is extremely helpful to everyone and is thoughtful, kind and willing to go the extra mile for both teachers and classmates,” McClurg said. “Whenever a task needs to be done, Morgan is there to do it. She often volunteers her time to help out a classmate who has been absent or needs extra help and she is dependable and consistent in her academic subjects. Morgan is also compassionate and can often be seen inviting both students and teachers to eat with her and her classmates in the dining hall. Her thoughtfulness does not go unnoticed.”
