Hudson Elementary School students of the month

Students of the month

Once monthly, the Times randomly selects a couple of students to highlight in Top of the Class. This month's featured students are from Hudson Elementary School.

Danielle Kervin, 8, Grade 3

Favorite subject: Math

Favorite book: Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt

Extracurricular activities: Chorus at school, choir and liturgical dance team at church, Club TreeBark (they plant seeds from the pine cones to help the environment), giving out food and toys to the homeless at the holidays.

Why do you think you were chosen as student of the month? I think I was chosen as student of the month because I help the other students in class with their work. Also, if someone does not understand a concept in class, I help them figure the problem out, especially in math. I also help my teacher by getting objects for the group and running errands so she can help other people in the group.

Teacher's take: "Danielle exhibits numerous skills of an effective communicator. Whenever Danielle needs to communicate thoughts that have to do with a piece of text, or just having a conversation, it's an absolute joy!" — teacher Emily Thoms.

Joe Baum, 9, Grade 4

Favorite subject: Math

Favorite author: Jeff Kinney (Diary of a Wimpy Kid)

Extracurricular activities: Soccer, baseball, swimming, drawing.

Why do you think you were chosen as student of the month? Because I am respectful, responsible and sage. Also, I'm honest, fair and try to get all my work done. I have a lot of friends and get along well with them. I enjoy making people laugh and feel better about themselves.

Teacher's take: "Joe is a positive role model behaviorally and academically. He always contributes to class conversations in a positive, meaningful way. He is a respectful and responsible student." — teacher Melissa Richarz.
