Students Recognized for Being Responsible
The motto of our school district is to create scholars of today, leaders of tomorrow. As part of that mission, Mariemont High School focuses on leadership qualities to help students understand what it takes to become a leader. Each month, one leadership quality is highlighted and teachers can nominate students who have shown this quality during the month.
For the month of April, the leadership quality of the month was responsibility.
The names of the nominated students were put into a drawing and three names were drawn as winners. The Mariemont High School Campus Life team rewarded the winners with a Chipotle lunch that is brought to them during their lunch time at school. The three students that were selected are:
Liz Geary was nominated by Mrs. Leszczuk for her work with her service dog.
Corrine Fanta was nominated by Mrs. Thomas because Corrine is “the definition of responsibility.”
Ryan Fields was nominated by Mrs. Arp because “he is often seen helping a fellow classmate navigate through daily events and situations within the school day.”
Congratulations to all of the students that were nominated. You are role models both in our school and in our community!
Kiwanis Recognizes Mariemont Junior High Students
This month is Student Achievement Month for Kiwanis. This week, the group presented the Outstanding Community Service Award to Kristen Keyes, a Mariemont Junior High School 8th grade student and recognized the Mariemont Junior High Stock Club, “Warrior Stocks,” that placed 1st in the regional competition and 3rd in state.
According to the Mariemont Junior High School Builder’s Club advisor Nicole Parr, Kristen Keyes “just has an awesome attitude all of the time. She is such a hard worker, both in the classroom and in the community. Kristen is committed, reliable and does everything with a smile on her face. I know she is involved in a lot of things – from performing arts to volunteering with her church – but she always finds time to help despite being involved in so much.”
The MJHS Builders Club has 25 active members, and in addition to the students volunteering collectively with many events and activities, they also pursued their own community service projects, through places of worship, with their families and within the Greater Cincinnati community.
Mariemont Junior High School Principal Molly Connaugton presented an award to the “Warrior Stocks” members. Annie Doran, Jossey Frye, Jacquelyn Kauffman, Abby Miller Melanie Weiss and Claire Wilder, lead by the Kiwanis of Mariemont Stock Market Game leader Roger Stafford, truly excelled this year.
The national Kiwanis Stock Club program’s goal is to help students develop investment interest and education. The Stock Club program at the junior high would not be possible without the generosity of Kiwanis. “Our partnership with the school district is instrumental to the success of everything we do for these children,” said Barb Anderson, Kiwanis member. “We just want to help young people be all they can be.”
