RIPLEY - Rachel Shioleno, a fourth grade student at Ripley Central School, was nominated by her classroom teacher, Lisa Sabella, and awarded the October Student of the Month.
"Rachel is a great student and classmate," Sabella said. "Rachel works with all of her classmates and often helps them when they need something. Rachel carries things for her classmates from the cafeteria to class every day. Rachel always waits her turn to contribute to class discussions and always has very useful contributions. Rachel is helpful to her teachers as well. She is a great example for students to emulate. She is a model student. When work is difficult, Rachel asks questions to help understand the task and does a great job with all assignments. I am glad to have Rachel as a student this year. It's truly a pleasure."
