I nominate Jenna Holst as the JH Science Student of the Month. Jenna is the daughter of Scott & Kim Holst. Jenna is in my 7th grade Life Science class and I am happy to say that I have the honor of having Jenna in my classroom again next year for 8th grade Earth Science. Jenna is a very motivated student in the classroom and leader among her peers. Jenna is an active member in the Wabasha-Kellogg dance and volleyball team. Jenna is also very active away from W-K. Her favorite things to do outside include hunting, fishing, and swimming. I look forward to watching Jenna grow as a student, a leader, and an athlete here at Wabasha-Kellogg.

The science department nomination for 9th – 10th grade student of the month is Rebecca Mona. Becca is the daughter of Joel Mona and Michelle Sexton. Becca is a 10th grade student currently enrolled in both biology and chemistry. Both biology and chemistry can be difficult classes on their own for students, but Becca has been a strong student in both courses all year long consistently showing her commitment to excellence in achievement in both courses. She always puts her best effort forward in individual work as well as collaborating effectively in group or laboratory settings. Becca’s post high school plans include something in the science or medical field and she plans to continue taking upper level science courses here at WK. I look forward to her leadership and insight in CIS anatomy and physiology in the coming year.

Sam Jewson has a black belt in logic and a PhD in personality. The first trait makes him a wonderful problem-solver and the second…well, he’s just an easy kid to like. Sam is taking College Physics with Mr. Thyren and has really demonstrated great thinking habits. He is willing to work for an answer and thrives when challenged. He works magnificently in small group settings to explore the topics of light and color, electricity and circuits, as well as astronomy. He appears to have genuinely enjoyed his time in CIS Physics pondering the world as scientists do.
