Student of the Month Program – High Achievers Earn Recognition at GSJSH

October 30, 2018


How are high achievers recognized at Golden Sierra High School?  A new Student of the Month program, designed by teacher Bill Sammons and Librarian Angela Schroeder, and in collaboration with Principal Jeremy Meyers, is highlighting a 7th-12th grade student each month.  All staff recognize one student in their class, then these students are reviewed by the team and a final selection is made.


What criteria is considered for recommendation?  Each teacher bases his/her decision upon character traits such as citizenship, service, integrity, contribution to class as well as academic achievement, perseverance and determination.  GSJSH is striving to ensure that students plan for their future; “building a college resume can begin as early as 7th grade,” says Sammons.  “It’s never too early to start.”


All students are recognized in class and receive a certificate of merit; the Student of the Month is featured in a video production designed and filmed in the CTE video production class.  The student’s picture and description of his/her outstanding student attributes is displayed in the hallway display case.


Student Landon York was selected by Sammons in September “for his academic achievement as well as his contribution to the school through his participation in extra-curricular activities.” October’s student was Madison Bradley, nominated by Mr. Robin Jones, who stated “I have seen enormous improvement from Algebra 1 to now.  She has transitioned …thanks to her perseverance.”


This tangible recognition of what makes a Golden Sierra Super Star is just one way to encourage students to work hard, set positive role models and achieve at their personal best.


Congratulations, Golden Sierra Students of the Month.
