Anclote Elementary students of the month

It's a long-standing feature on Top of the Class to list the students who have been selected as Students of the Month at their schools. Once monthly, the Times randomly selects a couple of students to highlight. This month's featured students are from Anclote Elementary in New Port Richey.

Daniel Breto, 8

Grade: Second

Favorite subject: Science, especially space.

Extracurricular activities: "Sunday School at Queen of Peace, watching TV, playing with my little sister Emily (she's 11/2) and sometimes riding my bike when it's cooler outside."

Why do you think you were chosen as student of the month? "I've been good, smart and honest."

Teacher's take: "Daniel is a very inquisitive child, especially in the area of science. His curiosity and excitement about learning led me to choose Daniel as student of the month." — Ms. Gendron

Kamar Karzon, 11

Grade: Fifth

Favorite subjects: Science and reading.

Extracurricular activities: "I really like swimming, hanging out with friends, reading, football, acting and gymnastics."

Why do you think you were chosen as student of the month? "I think I was chosen as student of the month because I'm always nice to everyone, always focused on everything I do, and I study and get very good grades."

Teacher's take: "Kamar is one of the sweetest, nicest kids I've ever met. She is well liked by everyone. She works very hard to achieve good grades; always paying attention, completing her work and participating." — Ms. Melanie Weitz
