Hannah Carstensen, a fifth-grader at Safety Harbor Elementary, has been named January's Student of the Month by the Safety Harbor Kiwanis Club.
Hannah excels at music as well as academics. She has been playing guitar and recorder since the third grade, clarinet and piano since the fourth grade and enjoys singing.
She has also been selected to participate in the Pinellas All-County Orff Ensemble, in which she will perform with 30 other students from Safety Harbor and other elementary schools. Developed in the 1920s by German composer-educator Carl Orff, the ensemble features xylophones, metallophones and glockenspiels adapted specifically for the elementary music classroom.
Since kindergarten, Hannah has held offices such as president and secretary in K-Kids, an international student-led organization providing members with opportunities to perform service, build character and develop leadership.
Kiwanis Club president Pam Corbino awarded the trophy.
