My name is Hunter Rivard. My friends call me Hunter. I am in 11th grade. I believe that i earned student of the month by completing Spanish in just 2 weeks. It feels great, cause i have never been a student of the month for anything. I didn’t get a reaction out of my parents because I just recently found out about being the student of the month. I am unique because I work on my stuff on my own time and my own pace. I like how I can work on my own classes on my own time and my own pace, it makes it a lot more easy for me. My advice for online students is that should complete the easier classes first then go and do the harder classes last. They could possibly be student of the month for being the nicest or most polite person in the last few weeks. I have been on the honor roll back in fifth grade and that was the last reward I have had before.
My name is Brenna, my friends call me Brenna, and I'm in 10th grade. I think I earned student of the month by putting in a lot of hard work and effort into my work. It feels cool to be student of the month. My parents were really excited and happy for me. I think my sense of humor makes me unique. I like virtual school because I can work ahead if I want. I would tell other students that you need to try hard and keep up on your classes. I think anyone can be student of the month because all you have to do is put in time and effort. I've received student of the month before. I've also gotten an award for doing the right thing.

My name is Jonha Scherzer. I've never actually been given an alternative name by any friends, so most people just call me Jonha. My grades generally tend to range between A's and B's and since I'm human, C's are not always excluded. I believe I earned Student of the Month by working hard. I'm trying to ensure I don't have to work hard later on by working very hard early on. I haven't won an award since elementary school, so it feels absolutely amazing to have achieved Student of the Month. It most definitely represents the fruits of my labour thus far. It is quite encouraging to continue working and perhaps work even harder.
My family was quite proud when I told them I'd made Student of the Month. I've already stated that I don't often win awards, so this was new to them as well as it was me.
I'm a very unique individual, I've been told. I observed these claims and I've found this to majorly be due to my gumption to ask questions for myself and my tendency to solely do things independently. In a society full to the brim with docile and unconditionally compliant people content with whatever status quo is shown to them, it is almost considered radical to show signs of self sufficiency and independent inquisition.
To me, personally, the best feature virtual school has to offer is and always will be its individual accountability. I've said this before, but a physical classroom is a universally co-dependent collective with no exceptions. If a teacher is not a good teacher, then not only do the students fail, but the teacher will as well. In virtual school, the information is merely presented in an interactive lesson and it is up to the students as individuals to do with that information what they will. Whatever they do, in the end, it's their choice.
If other students are actively seeking to achieve student of the month, this may very well potentially be their undoing. If you work solely extrinsically, you'll be passing your classes on paper, but the reward is given, as has been clarified by Mr. Albrecht, to those who work for long-term success instead of short term rewards.
I do believe that anyone can be Student of the Month. Anyone has the ability to work hard and keep their heart aimed at success.
Besides Student of the Month, the only awards I've ever actually acquired are admission on the A/B honour roll 6 times throughout elementary school. At that time, I never understood how truly imperative it was for my future to work hard in all my endeavors. Now I understand the necessity of which inside and out.
