Students recognized for promoting positive classroom culture

Community Editor


Forest Lake Area High School’s student council recognized students for their hard work and dedication to promoting positive environments in their classes during third quarter.

In the student council’s quest for recognizing those students who have showcased the positive things going on in the department and have helped create a culture where being kind and doing well in the classroom is a great thing, the academic department teachers chose one sophomore, junior, and senior who have demonstrated these concepts to receive a certificate and recognition.
Each teacher wrote a letter with a reason as to why that student should be selected and then mailed that letter to the student who would receive the recognition. Reasons for choosing a particular student included “this student was phenomenal with their writing skills and thinking outside the box,” to “this student was extremely helpful this quarter with a student who did not understand the material.”

At the culmination of the third quarter, the student council held a small presentation and handed out certificates recognizing the various students. Everyone enjoyed a breakfast provided by Big Apple Bagels.
