Jeannette McKee Middle School has named its students of the month for September.
Eighth-grader Olivia Coffman is a member of the high school marching band and her favorite class is band.
She believes she was chosen as student of the month because “I try hard in class and always listen.”
After high school graduation, she would like to attend college to study to become a pastry chef.
“I am proud of having amazing friends and getting good grades this year.”
Olivia is the daughter of Mark and Christine Coffman.
Seventh-grader Elise Johnson is a cheerleader who enjoys pre-algebra and family consumer science class.
She believes she was chosen as a student of the month because, “I always have a great attitude toward school.”
After high school, she hopes to attend college to study to become a teacher.
She is most proud that she always helps other people in the best way she can.
Elise is the daughter of Beth Johnson and Eddie Johnson.
Hannah Streussnig, a sixth-grader, is involved in Jeannette Soccer Club and she is active on student council.
“I think I like art class the best because I get to draw, paint and be creative.
“It's exciting because I get to do what I like to do in art class and in school,” she said.
Hannah said she always comes to class with a positive attitude and is consistently prepared for class and she believes those are the reasons she was chosen as student of the month.
After high school, she would like to attend the University of Pittsburgh
Hannah would also like to volunteer for a local animal shelter and eventually, she hopes to open a restaurant.
Something she is very proud of is getting eight goals out of nine attempts in soccer.
“I think that is really exciting for me. It's something I didn't think I could ever have done,” she said.
Hannah is the daughter of Dawn Savla and Peter Streussnig.
