Students of Month for August and September selected at middle school

From the left are the Laurel Middle School Students of the Month Emmet Renner, Mya Hansen, Jocelyn Wolcott, and Thomas Amestoy.

Laurel Middle School selected four eighth-grade students to honor as Students of the Month for August and September. Mya Hansen and Emmet Renner were selected for August and Jocelyn Wolcott and Thomas Amestoy earned the honors for September.
One of August’s selectees is Mya Hansen who knows how to win at hide and seek. Given the opportunity, she would sneak into the lunchroom, hoping to get a snack and have a visit with the lunch ladies who would keep her hidden while people looked for her.
Mya is the daughter of Pat and Tricia Hansen. She has a little brother Cy, and she keeps busy with multiple clubs and sports at LMS. If Mya could have a superpower, it would be to heal people. She hates to see people hurting and thinks it would be great to help. Her superpower choice explains why the eighth-grade team picked Mya as a student of the month. She works hard, is involved, but most importantly is kind and thoughtful.
Emmet Renner was also chosen as Student of the Month for August. He loves to visit the sand dunes in St. Anthony, Idaho. There he can enjoy a little isolation and a lot of “stomping on the throttle” of a dirt bike or a side-by-side. Emmet is the youngest in his family, which includes his parents Brad and Heidi and brothers Ethan and Isaiah. If he could have a superpower, it would be to teleport. He believes this would allow him to “maximize my productivity,” and see new places. Emmet was chosen as a student of the month because of his quality work and creativity.
If you see Jocelyn Wolcott, be sure to congratulate her on being a September Student of the Month! Jocelyn lives with her mother, father and sister. She has a brother that is away at college. Her spirit animal is the lion. Jocelyn appreciates lions for their strength, loudness and dangerous spirit. She would like the superpower to fly to avoid the long one-hour bus rides home. Jocelyn was chosen for this honor for her consistent work ethic and her creativity.
If you’re playing hide and seek with Thomas Amestoy, look in the art room. Thomas thinks that he can camouflage himself there among the supplies and projects. Thomas is the son of Brian and Christine Amestoy. His siblings are Austin, Alex and Makayla. Thomas can relate to the elephant as a spirit animal; he appreciates the elephant’s loyalty to family, because family is important to him. Thomas was picked as a student of the month because of his diligence in school and his kindness to others.
