Three Winters Middle School students are being honored as the October Cardinals of the Month.

The WMS mascot is the Cardinal and the school motto is S.O.A.R., which stands for our behavioral expectations of S (Safety First), O (Own your Actions), A (Always be Kind) and R (Respect for All).

“We teach these expectations in all classes and show what they look like in different settings on campus so students are set up for success,” said WMS Principal Dawn Delorefice. “All staff reward students by handing out Cardinal Compliments to students regularly. Every month we host a Cardinal Compliment raffle to incentivize positive behaviors on campus.”

These students were nominated by their peers for showing the WMS S.O.A.R. expectations.

Damian Prado is the sixth grade honoree. Peers commented that Prado is a SOARing Cardinal and is kind and respectful to students and staff. Prado is also known to makes people laugh, is always on task and he helps others to make good choices.

Teagan Garcia is the seventh grade honoree. Peers said that Garcia always demonstrates SOARing behaviors by being kind and respectful, helps others and includes everyone.

Ava Coker is the eighth grade honoree. Peers said Coker is a great Cardinal. She cares about others and helps them to get their work done and be successful. She is also kind to her peers.

Delorefice said the honorees and the students who nominated them will attend a pizza party to celebrate.

Congratulations to the October Cardinals of the Month.
