Compass Charter Schools (CCS) Names their September
Scholars of the Month

Thousand Oaks, CA – CCS is proud of its scholars and uses its Scholar of the Month program to recognize their accomplishments.

Scholars are nominated by teachers and staff for their academic excellence, work ethic, leadership skills, and virtual involvement, and selected by the leadership team for the monthly honor.

Elementary School Scholar of the Month: Aribella K. of Canoga Park

“I have had the pleasure of working with Ari for several years now,” shares Ms. Fisher, Supervising Teacher. “Each year, she works incredibly hard on her reading and math goals (and makes sure she has fun while doing it.) Ari’s hard work has paid off because she rocked the fall diagnostic assessments! I cannot wait to see all that Ari accomplishes this year.”

Middle School Scholar of the Month: Logan W. of Pasadena

Ms. Marroquin, supervising teacher, shares, “Logan participated in the California State Games for archery over this past weekend, and he persevered to win a first-place medal for his age group and archery class (barebow). Logan also plays the violin amazingly. I am excited to see his work samples at the end of the month. Logan is a well-rounded Compass scholar.”

High School Scholar of the Month: Michelle R. of Pasadena

“Michelle has been a beacon of light in both her homeroom and Spanish classes,” shares Mrs. Davis, High School Teacher. “She assists her fellow scholars in various ways. She helps guide scholars by recording and uploading vocaroo links into the LMS. During the first weekly learning lab, with the teacher’s lead, she demonstrated to her peers how to get started with successful audio recordings for Spanish. During the second learning lab, she demonstrated how to copy and paste work in the comments box to help scholars avoid time-consuming file creation. Not only does she stay abreast of her own work, but she also contributes to the classroom community by sharing her knowledge with her peers. Michelle is compassionate, kind, generous, and diligent. Above all, she is a valuable asset to the learning community at Compass Charter Schools.”
