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.

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
