Student of the Month: January

The student of the month awards for January were given to the Social Justice Book Bowl team, led by team teacher Sveri May. The award celebrates the team’s hard work under the coaching of May. For the Social Justice Book Bowl held at Western Michigan University, students were required to read “All American Boys” by Jason Reynolds and Brendan Kiely, and “Because They Marched” by Russell Freedman. After the team read the assigned books, they competed at a competition. At this competition the students were asked 20 questions. The students worked together to win 10 points for every question answered right. The following students were the selected students of the month.

Sveri May- Staff of the month

The students and staff member were invited to the luncheon for their hard work at the Book Bowl competition.

“It takes time and commitment to do Book Bowl,” said junior and member, Mey Wong. “If you can’t do that, then Book Bowl probably isn’t for you.”

“I was thrilled to receive this honor last year so I am even more proud this year,” said Book Bowl coach, Sveri May. “The students put in mega hours of reading and doing annotations and to be their coach makes me so proud of them. I am thrilled that Loy Norrix honors them and me with a special luncheon and plaque.”

The Book Bowl team was very happy to have received this award and be acknowledged for all of their hard work and effort.
