She has really improved her work ethic since the beginning of the year!” Amy King, math teacher, added, “Angel demonstrates the 3 R’s in the classroom-respect, responsibility and ready to learn. Throughout the year, Angel has continually improved on her math skills. She works hard in class and is willing to participate during the lessons. Angel is friendly to everyone. She takes her time on her work to make sure she is comprehending the objective for the day. It is a pleasure to have her in class.”

Angel’s favorite classes are English and reading.

After high school, she plans to attend college.

When asked what she liked best about being a student at CMS, Angel said, “I think that the best thing about being a student at CMS is that the teachers trust you to get your stuff and go to class on your own.”

Lucas was nominated by Cindy Newton, media center specialist, for being a great Green coat (media center student assistant). Newton stated, “Lucas comes in each day ready to work. He accomplishes his task with near perfection. No task is left undone. When I am busy, I know the media center is in good hands.”
