Friday, October 9, 2015

Lincoln-Way Central Science teachers are honoring ten students for their outstanding efforts in the classroom.

Each month, Lincoln-Way Central Science teachers nominate and select Science Students of the Month.

At Lincoln-Way Central, our teachers care about recognizing students who work hard in their class, take initiative and set an example for other students, said Dr. Steve Provis, principal of Lincoln-Way Central. The Science Student of the Month award provides that positive recognition from our teachers to really show students how much their efforts are appreciated.

The students are nominated by their teachers for various types of achievements including class participation and excellence in homework as two examples, said Dr. Sarah Highfill, science department chair.

When asked what they enjoy most in their Science class, student Alex Fahey said he enjoyed the online simulations that allow you to explore the solar system and Anthony Izzarelli said it was fun to use insects as part of an experiment testing the scientific method.

For the month of September, 75 students were nominated by 11 teachers. September winners are: Nate Davis nominated by Catherine Sieber, Chemistry; Shaun Judge, nominated by Chris Macek and Jeff Koryczan, Earth Science; Jeremy Roseen, nominated by Jennifer Malito, Honors Biology; Ashley Stiehler nominated by Dave Mulconrey, Chemistry Fundamentals; Allison Tanis, nominated by John Sunta, Honors Physics.
