We have some amazing students in our District. These kids are bright, kind, funny, and inspiring. We wanted to give them a shout out, so we started the #GoodBunch116 program. We asked our school principals to collaborate with their staff to pick one student that exemplifies kindness, leadership, community, and school values.
We are so proud to present our #GoodBunch116 students!

Ellis School is very proud of Jacob. Mrs. Holland describes him as honest and very responsible. Jacob says his teachers would say he is a good student!
Jacob has been attending school at Ellis since first grade. His favorite subject is math and the best part about Ellis is seeing his friends.
At home Jacob has a sister at RLHS and lives with his mom and dad and lots of pets, a frog named Frank, 2 monarch butterflies, a new baby cockatoo names Reko, and 2 dogs Lily and Bailey.
Jacob is an avid fisherman. He fishes on the Chain O'Lakes and he likes it when he catches walleye, but admits he gets a lot of catfish! He loves his family trips to Canada! He also does Karate and will be testing for his first belt this weekend!
In the future he hopes to be a commercial fisherman sponsored by Bass Pro!

Kindergarten at PleviakThis student is observant and kind. I was wearing a brace on my arm and she asked what was wrong. After I answered her, she said, "I hope you get better soon." The next week, she noticed I wasn't wearing it and she said, "I'm glad you are better now." - Ms. Villalobos

Emiliano was chosen because he is a sweet, kind, caring, and empathetic student who always goes above and beyond to help his friends and teachers, who follows directions and rules, is safe, respectful, and responsible, and who is always excited to be in school, always smiling, and is a role model to his peers!
5th Grade, Ellis Elementary School
Maria has attended Ellis since second grade. She was born in Colombia, South America with her whole family. Maria was chosen for this month because she participates in Ellis’ school peer buddies. She is a peer buddy to a second-grade girl. She spends time with her once a week to practice social skills, taking turns, how to be a good friend, and she takes the time to get to know her buddy and what she likes.
Her favorite subject is math with Mr. Hanson, and she is in the advanced math class again this year. Her favorite thing about Ellis is the activities we do, like field days, mural painting, and the positive energy the school has. She likes how her teachers are respectful to everyone.
Her goal in the future is to become a surgeon or anything that involves helping others!
