Continuing our middle school teacher spotlights, today we would like to shine some light on our dedicated 6th grade math teacher, Mrs. Cathy Boyce. Mrs. Boyce's students LOVE the support she gives them. When asked about what they appreciate about Mrs. Boyce, her students responded that "she motivates us a lot", "she's understanding", and "she helps us go above and beyond". Mrs. Boyce's students say "she's persistent", and that she "pushes us" to be better students. They appreciate her helpful study guides and her willingness to help students when they get stuck. Her students also appreciate that she recognizes and celebrates them when they do good things. When students come to class prepared, when they get their work done, and when they make good choices, Mrs. Boyce congratulates them with rewards that students really enjoy. Thank you, Mrs. Boyce, for helping your students build both their math skills AND their study habits.

This spring we would like to recognize some of the unsung heroes of our school, our intrepid middle school teachers. Our first middle school teacher spotlight is going to shine on Mrs. Julie Fisher. Mrs. Fisher is beloved by her students. When asked to describe Mrs. Fisher, students said that she is "always positive" and "always in a good mood." Students appreciate Mrs. Fisher's warmth. One student said what she appreciates most about Mrs. Fisher is that, "She greets us with good morning and always has a friendly attitude." Other students wanted her to know that they are grateful to her for "always taking time to explain stuff to us", and that they are thankful for the way she "actually cares about us." Even when students make mistakes, Mrs. Fisher "is very forgiving" and "gives students second chances." Thank you, Mrs. Fisher, for being a kind and steadfast supporter in your students' lives.

Congratulations to Wyatt Switzer on being named the February Student of the Month. Here is just a small part of what Mr. Standers said about Wyatt. “I've observed so many fabulous students over the years. I love the caring atmosphere of the South Putnam community. But none compares to what this young man brings to one of the students in my classroom. When this student is having a bad day, a visit from Wyatt always changes it for him. That student has a big smile the rest of the day. I don't know if Wyatt knows, but he is a bright shining light in this student's life.”
