Mar 10, 2020

Wareham Schools are celebrating exceptional students for the month of February.

At the High School, ninth-grader Indiana Troupe was selected to be both the February Student of the Month and the Scotty Award winner.

At the Middle School, Danikka Myers was selected as the Scotty Award winner. Her teachers describe her as being confident, enthusiastic, and eager to try new things. Myers is responsible, highly-motivated, and serves as a role model for her peers.

The fifth grader of the month is Domonique Scroggins, the daughter of Crytstal Grant. Domonique’s favorite subject is math. One of her teachers described her as an “upbeat student who not only pursues the best effort from herself, but encourages her peers to work hard as well, offering support in the process.” Another teacher said that “her smile brightens up the room and her positive attitude is just as radiant,” and said she is a “classroom treasure.”

The sixth grader of the month is Andrew Gillpatrick, the son of Anne Gillpatrick, who said his favorite subject is social studies. One teacher said that “Andrew is a conscientious student who always puts forth his best effort. He is a role model to his peers as he is helpful to all and encourages others to do their best.” Another teacher said, “Andrew is a delight to see on a daily basis. He is always trying his best on his schoolwork and strives to be even better. Andrew helps others when they are struggling, whether it be with schoolwork or lending a hand at lockers, which really makes him stand out.”

Alexis Kennedy, the daughter of Tiffany Kennedy, is the seventh grade student of the month. “Alexis is a quiet young lady with an infectious smile who is kind and thoughtful to her peers and staff,” said one teacher. Another said: “Alexis is dedicated and conscientious. She works cooperatively and cheerfully with others and is always willing to tackle any assignment. Her perseverance and hard work are a great example to others. What a great work ethic!”
