Boring middle school student of the month

Cody Anderson

Boring Middle School

Eighth grade

Cody Anderson is a kind, helpful and hard-working student at Boring Middle School who makes his teachers and fellow students smile. One characteristic, however, stands out about Cody: respect. When working in a group, he does more listening than talking, not only because he is courteous but also because he understands the value of hearing the opinions and feelings of others. No one in the group, no matter their abilities or background, leaves feeling less important around him.

Cody often is a leader among his peers. His desire to follow the rules set by others, coupled with his sense of humor, make Cody successful. His strong work ethic, honesty and respect for others will continue to serve him well.
