Big Sioux Media and Luv My Sweets are proud to continue the “Cardinal of the Month” campaign for the 2021-2022 school year! Every month students from Dell Rapids St Mary will be chosen to be recognized as “Cardinals of the Month”. We want to not only recognize the hard work that students put in the classroom with their studies, but also the great things they are doing inside the school and out in the community, such as being positive role models to younger students, lending a helping hand without asking, or community service. Administration and staff will be nominating and selecting students each month. Big Sioux Media will be recognizing those students on our website, presenting them with a certificate, and treats from Luv My Sweets!
If you spot a student exhibiting the qualities listed in the community, and would like to nominate them for Cardinal of the Month, email us at email@example.com. We’ll send your comments to the appropriate school for the administration to consider them as a nominee!
September Cardinals of the Month
Dell Rapids St Mary Elementary School – Allie Hansen: According to her nomination, Allie is a hard worker, pays attention to detail and asks questions to deepen a conversation. She doesn’t complain about tasks or requests and is always willing to help others. She has a witty sense of humor and a smile that is contagious. She is respectful and kind and is a great role model for others. These attributes as well as her strong faith make Allie the perfect candidate for Cardinal of the Month. Congratulations Allie!
Dell Rapids St Mary High School – Kade Lutt: One of the reasons Kade was nominated for Cardinal of the Month is his involvement in both athletics and fine arts. This year Kade is participating in Football, Basketball, and Track and Field, as well as being a member of the Oral Interp Team and the St. Mary Band.
The primary reason Kade was nominated was for his friendly and positive personality. A nominating teacher explained, “I don’t know that I’ve ever met a more positive young man.” The teacher went on to say, “Kade always has a smile on his face and wishes everyone good morning, good afternoon, and so on.” Teachers have commented that his personality makes him a joy to have in class, with one teacher saying, “Kade is always a pleasant and positive young man to be around. He always tries his hardest and pours himself in to everything he does.” Another teacher added, “Kade is so fun to watch in his activities with how he picks others up. Whether its football, marching band, or anything he does, Kade is always sharing words of encouragement with his teammates and classmates.” Kade is a tremendous young man who lifts the spirits of everyone around him, and that makes him an excellent choice as the 7-12 Cardinal of the Month for the month of September. Congratulations Kade!
