Four elementary students from East Lake area schools were recognized as students of the month by the Rotary Club of East Lake Sunrise.

For December 2013, the students are fifth-graders Noah Londot of Brooker Creek Elementary and Jocelyn Khoungvongsa of Cypress Woods Elementary.

Noah was nominated by teacher Michelle Fleeman for his "never give up" attitude. He participates in groups, helps other students, gives 100 percent to every task given and applies the same work ethic to art, music and physical education, his teacher said. He's also involved in after-school sports.

Teachers Tracey Greenlees and Mary Romary describe Jocelyn as a young lady of quiet determination, arriving at school each day with a smile, eager to start learning. The fifth-grader is usually the first one in her seat, starting work before all others. She gives her all in class and takes the initiative to continue pursuing excellence in her work at home. Everything she does is always of the highest quality, with beautiful handwriting and attention to detail, her teachers said.

Students of the month for January are Sydni Browder, a Brooker Creek Elementary fifth-grader, and fourth-grader Dylan Maller of Cypress Woods Elementary.

Teacher Danielle Gabbert recommended Sydni because she is a hard-working student who consistently exhibits drive and an eagerness to learn. Gabbert also notes that Sydni is always polite and kind to her peers and consistently offers help to those in need. A valued member of the student body, she displays admirable characteristics that are sure to help her achieve success, her teacher said.

Described as a well-rounded student by nominating teacher Mary Ellen Ariotti, Dylan shows great character, follows rules, is respectful of others and shows caring and kindness to his classmates. He is responsible about turning in homework, cooperates well in groups, participates in discussions and has the courage to venture an answer even when he's not sure if it's the "right" one. The fourth-grader exhibits a natural curiosity and wants to learn about many things, his teacher said.

All the students received certificates from the Rotary Club of East Lake Sunrise.
