12th Graders:

  • Ali Hosseinzadeh 
  • Drake Kelly 
  • Ethan Levine 
  • Joe Love 
  • Sammy Wild

“We are so proud of our first semester Character Captured recipients,” said Kim Fine, Neuwoehner principal. “Each of these students have been leaders of character for Neuwoehner, demonstrating our focused character traits over the past months including being good citizens at school and in the community and showing respect for themselves as well as others.”

Two winners were selected from each learning community by Neuwoeher teachers and paraprofessionals. They were specifically looking for students who demonstrated great character and who made progress on behavior and academic goals. 

“This is one way we can celebrate students who are being successful at school,” said Kyla Yount, teacher and award ceremony coordinator. “We invite families to celebrate as well. This type of event can also help motivate other students to serve as role models to peers.”

During the ceremony, Fine also highlighted service learning projects completed in the first and second quarter. Learning Community 1 created cards for first responders and veterans. Learning Community 2 hosted a sock drive for the homeless. Learning Community 3 made and sold dog treats and donated their proceeds to Stray Rescue. Learning Community 4 made dog toys for the APA Adoption Center

This is the 10th year of Character Capture Awards ceremonies at Neuwoehner for the past 10 years and countless students have been recognized and celebrated. Second semester recipients will be recognized on May 12.
