GCMS March Students of the Month

rose rojas-medina and Liam Clark are Grand County Middle School's students of the month for March
Rose Rojas-Medina

The seventh grade student of the month is Rose Rojas-Medina, a student with excellent academic qualities. She is polite, respectful and gets along with her classmates.

She is attentive during class time and is greatly motivated to learn new concepts. One quality that makes her stand out is her enthusiasm when completing class projects. If Rose says she is going to finish an assignment at home, during the weekend, you may expect she will do it.

It’s a pleasure to have Rose in class because she is willing to participate in daily assignments and she always stays on task. Rose is Latina and speaks Spanish fluently. She lived much of her life in Mexico and has lived in Moab for about six years.

Rose always tries to do her best. She likes dogs and likes to play volleyball. Her advice to others ism “Try your best and do what you can.”

Liam Clark

The eighth grade student of the month is Liam Clark.

Middle school is not only about how a student performs academically, but also about the activities students are involved in and relationships they build each year.

Liam is a role model for his peers in all three of these areas. Not only does he do extremely well in each of our classes, but he does so while being involved in extracurricular activities including student council and Honor Society.

Liam is very kind to all of the students he encounters throughout the day regardless of whether or not they are part of his friend group. In class, he is always focused and attentive while being conscientious towards his work.

Going above and beyond is the norm for him, and he truly gives 110% each day. Liam sets a great example for his peers and is a true leader. In student council, he picks up the slack when his peers fall behind. He is an absolute joy to have in class. His work ethic and persistence will take him far!

Liam likes going to school and his favorite subjects are math and English. He plays the violin and is a great performer. He likes “Star Wars” and Legos. Liam loves his family.

His advice to others is, “Focusing on your goals is what leads to success.”
