    Since winter break, Taylor has come back with an even better attitude and willingness to learn.

    • Kevin Co
    • Karenn Guerrero
    • Yashar Samsami
    • Sifti Kaur

    Kevin Co consistent positive attitude is infectious. His willingness to help out others and uplift them has helped shape the culture of our 6th period. This past Friday he literally gave someone the shoes straight off of his feet so that they could participate in their match. Kev Co is the shining example of what a Falcon can be. - Mr. Hall


    Karenn Guerrero works hard in her classes and keeps up with the work.  She is "present" during the lessons and asks questions that benefit other students in class. - Laura Oswalt


    Yashar Samsami  - I was absent last week and posted a video lesson for my calculus students to watch. Yashar took ownership by attempting the homework problems for many hours even though he was struggling with the material since I wasn't there to teach it in person. He committed himself to solving his calculus even though the problems were very challenging! He also asks great questions in class and helps us stay on task because he takes his ownership of his learning very seriously! - Michelle Nelsen


    Sifti Kaur is an outstanding student in my class. She consistently stays ahead of the assigned Microsoft projects. Since she is able to work ahead, she often spends her class time helping her fellow students understand the project tasks in Microsoft Excel. I have actually called her my Assistant Teacher, because that is the behavior she takes on for multiple students in the computer lab. Sifti displays enthusiasm, optimism, and leadership everyday. She is an excellent role model with an excellent attitude. She defines what SOAR is all about. - Mr. Todd Newberg

    • Ariel Blalock
    • Christine Tran
    • Orlando Garza
    • Santiago Martinez

    Ariel Blalock:     Honestly, I wish I could have nominated her for every SOAR category. Ariel has a maturity level well beyond her years. She takes ownership for every project, every endeavor, actually, when it comes to the Teaching and Training pathway. She is supportive, helpful, and encouraging to her peers and demonstrates creativity and enthusiasm consistently. For example, on her own accord, Ariel regularly reaches out to other students whom she knows are struggling and offers her assistance on assignments and projects. She will communicate with me about those she helps and will ask for affirmation that the information she has disseminated is correct. It is such a joy to witness these characteristics already exhibited in a future teacher! Additionally, she has successfully secured a spot at the TAFE State competitions (no easy feat) and we all hope she will proceed to the national competitions this summer.  - Dr. Liz Starr



    Christine Tran is always so helpful to the teacher and their peers.  I enjoy her positive personality and thoughtfulness.      - Laura Oswalt



    Orlando Garza is a leader in his section. Goes beyond what is required in class. Consistently practices his music and achieves great success in orchestra. - Matthew Beland


    Santiago Martinez always takes responsibility for completing exceptional work, even when circumstances work against him. He has been a model student others can look to for guidance. - Samantha Routh
