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 firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll send your comments to the appropriate school for the administration to consider them as a nominee!
February Cardinals of the Month
Dell Rapids St Mary Elementary School – Lauryn LeBrun: According to her nomination, Lauryn is a wonderful student. She listens very well and her ability to multitask is impressive for a 5th grader. She is a fantastic helper in the classroom often helping before being asked. Although this is her first year at St. Mary, she has adapted and overcome so many challenges and it seems like she has been here much longer. She is a blessing to our school! Her faith is evident in her words and actions and we are proud to call her a Cardinal – congratulations Lauryn!
Dell Rapids St Mary High School – Kyle Bares: Kyle’s nominating teachers noticed how helpful Kyle is to everyone. One teacher explained, “Kyle is always helping people out. I never hear him complain, he just steps in and helps.” Another teacher commented that, “Kyle is a hard worker and has been putting great effort into his school work.” Kyle is someone who “is friendly to everyone in the school and treats everyone with respect. He is a great role model!” Kyle’s willingness to help anyone at any time without seeking recognition, while working hard on his academics and extra-curriculars and modeling exceptional respect and behavior for others makes him an excellent choice as the 7-12 Cardinal of the Month for the month of February. Congratulations Kyle!
