The schools have selected the following six students who best modeled these efforts in the month of September, pictured above from left.

Eighth grade — Derek Reed: “I have seen an amazing improvement in work ethic and overall positive attitude.”
Ninth grade — Isabella Beiring: “Isabella works very hard in math class. She works diligently in class and helps others. She is always very pleasant and usually has a smile for everyone. Also, she has come to yoga four weeks in a row and has brought a friend with her who now attends regularly. She is always willing to try new asanas and does a great job.” —Donna Haller

11th grade — Hailey Burk: “Every day, she asks if I need any help, and she helps push in chairs and straighten up after every single class. She is one of the most trustworthy and dependable students at YSHS.” —Kevin Lydy
12th grade — Riley Duncan: “After missing two A-day classes, Riley contacted me, inquiring about the work missed and clarifying what was on Google classroom; her sense of agency was outstanding.” —Kevin Lydy
