Linden Grove Students of the Month for February
6A Team – Sincere Clark
Sincere Clark is 6A's student on the month. Sincere is very focused in classes and completes all of her assignments on time with all the requirements. She participates in class discussions and works wonderfully with groups. Sincere is an amazing student and all of her teachers are very happy to have her in class each day.
6B Team – Lambert Zekoko
Math: Ms Knudsen:
Lambert is a great student. He is always one of the first students in class, asking what we are going to do for the day. He stays on top of assignments, turning them in on time, and sometimes even completes extra Dreambox activities. He is also a great leader in class by participating, asking questions, and leading breakout rooms. Lambert is a joy to have in my math class.
ELA: Mr Jansheski:
Mr. Zekoko is a model student who always does his best. His attendance is great and he turns in his work consistently and with high quality effort. Even though he doesn't like reading stories more than once, he will do whatever is asked and does it well!
Social Studies: Ms Burrell
Lambert brings a wonderful perspective to class. He enjoys sharing stories from his home country of Ruwanda and even includes words from his native Swahili language in some of his writing. He always has the will to fix anything he got wrong and is a very hard worker.
In his own words, he wants to:
"Keep on trying and give it my all/ I want to keep doing my thing and keep learning from my mistakes and achieving what I put my mind to" - Lambert
Science: Ms Wortham:
I nominate Lambert as student of the Month, primarily due to his resilience and willingness to not give up, he has a drive inside of him that pushes him to the next level academically!
In addition, Lambert has shown consistent improvement in the area of socially connecting with his teachers and peers.
Lambert is no longer the most reticent student on our Team, he has truly grown from the beginning of the school year to now by leaps and bounds, taking charge of his education and social life.
As a result of his consistent improvements, Lambert has become our top choice for the Most Improved Student on the 6B Team!

Madalyn is an extraordinary student and we are so grateful to have her on our team this year!
