Our first student Cougar of the Month is senior Jill Huckels.  Jill has found a way to help her classmates while also helping those in need.  This year, Jill has taken senior photos for her classmates so that they can be featured in the yearbook.  For her services, Jill has collected a nominal fee, which she has then turned around and donated to charity. Her nominator said, “Jill’s selflessness and desire to use her talents and abilities to help those around her are worthy of celebration.  She did not do this to be recognized, but her kindness is absolutely worthy of recognition.”  Thanks Jill for being such an excellent representative of Cougar spirit!  We are proud of you!

Congratulations to our October Cougars of the Month—the members of the Student A.C.T.I.O.N. Task Force.  The 25 members of the Task Force have given up time to receive training and have gone into classrooms to help teach their peers how to be UPstanders in the face of bullying.  One of their nominators wrote, “Bullying is a problem and these students are committed to doing something about it.  Teaching people what to do when they see bullying and giving them options is so powerful coming from students who are respected in the building.” Thank you for helping to make CT safer and more welcoming to all students.  Congratulations Task Force!!

Congratulations to our October Staff Cougar of the Month, Michael Lesperance.  Michael works very hard to keep the building running and in good working order.  His nominators stated, “After daylight savings time, Michael went around and changed over 200 clocks in the building. He had to take out the batteries to get them to reset properly. In addition, he helped with the Chrome Book delivery and clean up.  He is always so helpful. He responds to the building needs in a timely fashion. He has a great attitude. He is just an all-around great CTH employee!”  Thank you for all that you do for CTHS Michael!

Congratulations to Jennifer Sarro, a faculty Cougar of the Month.  Jen has been active in developing curriculum, volunteering as a cheer coach, and helping students who are struggling through her role as a Trail Boss.  One of her nominators wrote, “I think Jen Sarro would be a great Cougar of the Month.  Jen is a fabulous role model for our students and helps with the cheer team. She is a leader within our health department, as she has assisted with district level alignment of standards.”  Another nominator stated, “Jen has been doing great work as a Trail Boss. Her efforts are keeping students on track and helping them work toward success.” Thank you for giving so much of your time to help our students succeed—it is appreciated.  Congratulations Jen!

Congratulations to our Target Teacher of the Month for October, Spanish teacher Lalo Flores.  Lalo has embraced the use of technology in his classroom to increase student learning and continuously takes a leadership role in his department by helping others incorporate more technology into their classrooms.  One of his nominators stated, “Lalo Flores is an awesome Spanish teacher!  He works very hard to integrate technology into his classroom in a meaningful way.  He is constantly working on things for his class and coming up with new games, project ideas, and ways to integrate culture into the curriculum.  Lalo is generous in our department in sharing his genius and taking the time to introduce us to new technologies as well!  I am so happy to get to work with such a great department!”  Thank you for helping to inspire our students Lalo—we are lucky that you are a part of CT!
