This week’s student of the week is Josie Watkins.  Josie was nominated by Ms. Bluman because Josie is respectful and responsible. She is always on task and cares about actually learning the material and being successful in class. This week in class, we played a game and Josie stepped up to truly be a leader in her group. She helped every single person in her group understand the problems before moving on. She was very patient and explained the concepts well to her group members. She was caring and understanding with all her group members; Ms. Bluman is very proud of the way she conducted herself as a group leader!!. As this week’s student of the week, Josie will receive a coupon for one free admission to an Oakdale High School event.  Way to go Josie!
