The Mesa Public Schools Governing Board honored six outstanding students at their January board meeting. Students from Mesa High, Eisenhower Center for Innovation, and Field, Highland Arts, Roosevelt and Taft elementary schools have been named January Students of the Month:

Elijah Ry’Shyon Butler, senior, Mesa High
Rhett Gleason, sixth-grader, Field Elementary
Caitlyn Leslie, fifth-grader, Highland Arts Elementary
Shakib Martinez, sixth-grader, Taft Elementary
Calina Nguyen, third-grader, Roosevelt Elementary
Rylee Vasquez, third-grader, Eisenhower Center for Innovation

The Mesa Public Schools Student of the Month program gives the district the opportunity to celebrate success.

Each month during the school year, students from elementary, junior high and high schools throughout the district are selected to receive the award. Honorees are recognized for quality of character and excellence in leadership, academics, arts, athletics and more. Students of the Month win plaques and other prizes.

Board meetings come alive as families, friends, principals and teachers join district officials to honor Students of the Month. As videos show students in their daily school lives, their principals or other school representatives read thoughtful tributes aloud. Students take home special plaques and professional-quality portraits, provided by Mesa Public Schools. Winners also receive gift cards from the Mesa Foundation for Educational Excellence. Every presentation ends in proud handshakes, hugs and roaring applause from the crowd.

High expectations result in high student achievement

Student of the Month portraits hang on walls of honor in the Board Room and in the lobby of the Administrative Services Center. These smiling faces remind everyone who stops by that Students of the Month are shining examples of how high expectations pay off for the children of Mesa Public Schools.
