April 2023 ESPY Award Winners

Marcola School District Board Members want to Recognize our students monthly for exceptional performance at school.

ESPY: Exceptional Student Performance this Year – award is given to students who are doing well academically and have an exceptionally positive attitude about school. They demonstrate respect and responsibility towards staff and their peers.  They show courage by not conforming to Peer pressure and refuse to accept anyone who bullies.  

The MSD School Board and the District want to recognize these students by celebrating their success at the beginning of each Board Meeting each month.  Students receive a certificate, meet each of our Board members, and their names are announced on the district website.

April  2023  ESPY Winners are;

Katherine Rodriguez - 1st grade nominated by Michelle Mercer

“Katherine is always listening and following directions given the first time. She loves learning new things and has grown in skills by leaps and bounds. 

Katherine is always ready with a kind smile and positive words with her peers. She has shown others such a good example of what it means to be honest, trustworthy, kind, and helpful as a friend. She has quickly become a friend to all. 

Katherine always begins tasks quickly and works carefully with persistence, always striving to do her very best. 

Katherine has been exceptional all year in all areas. Her amazing progress and growing new circle of friends is proof that dedication and hard work and being a kind friend really pay off. "

Mia Dalton - 7th grade nominated by MMS Staff

"Mia is an exceptional student who comes to class excited about learning.  She is genuinely interested in exploring new topics in class and participating in vibrant class discussions. 

Mia goes beyond being respectful to her peers.  She regularly helps her peers when they are in need of some help or an emotional boost. 

Mia is usually working ahead and turning in her assignments before they are due.  Her effort and the quality of her work are both exceptional!  

The quality of Mia's work is truly outstanding.  She has been putting in even more effort lately which has clearly paid dividends in the work she has been producing lately.  I am confident that Mia will continue to be an inspirational leader in our school and accomplish many more amazing things after she graduates from Mohawk High School.”

Whitney Workman - 10th grade nominated by MHS Staff

“Whitney Workman is an extremely hard working student who represents the best of Mohawk High School students. She uses her time effectively, remains focused on success in the classroom, and is a positive member of the school community.

Whitney ended the 1st semester with perfect attendance and has maintained that high level of attendance all year. She shows up each day ready to learn and work. She can be counted on for positive questions or input, and her engagement has translated to success in her classes.

Whitney is a positive student who promotes a safe and caring school environment for all with her daily actions and the way she treats others. She never has negative things to say about peers or teachers, and her consistent focus on her own success is a great example for others.

We are delighted to have Whitney as a student and to recognize her for all her hard work.”

These students are all shining examples of the MSD spirit and we are thrilled to be able to recognize them for being exceptional students.
