Eighth Grade – Charlotte Stafford and Elijah Barker

Eighth-grade teachers have selected Charlotte Stafford of Clarkesville and Elijah Barker of Eastanolle as the Students of the Month for September.  

Charlotte is compassionate, empathetic, driven; strives for excellence, observant and deeply thoughtful. Elijah is intelligent, hard-working, leads by example; creative and extremely talented and kind.

Charlotte is a highly motivated upper cognitive thinker who has an uncanny ability to think outside the box.
– Tom Tilley

I love that Charlotte is driven. She goes out of her way to practice on her own and she realizes that putting in work outside of practice will make her better. She is also a fighter. She doesn't let circumstances keep her from doing what she needs to do.
– Coach Jennifer Cox

Charlotte strives for excellence and is always actively engaged in class. She makes connections between topics and shows a great understanding of complicated topics.

The best birthday card I have ever received – and I have earned quite a few birthday cards in my lifetime – was created by Elijah Barker. Elijah is a supremely talented artist and he's an all-around nice guy!

– Elizabeth Kyle

Elijah can be counted on to show quiet leadership both inside and outside the classroom. He is well liked and respected by teachers and students alike.
