Our featured Student of the Month representing the month of March is Francie Tedder. Francie attends the STEM Academy at Bartlett and is in seventh grade. She has consistently earned High Honor Roll every quarter and as she opted to take a course considered to be “difficult" by many- Economics & Personal Financial Literacy Honors course- she achieved a 100% for the first semester. Always attentive and organized, she is ready to learn each and every day!
Francie's extracurricular involvement includes Cross Country team (4th in the District) Award of Excellence in Photography STEM Reflections, National Jr. Honor Society, Swimming, and Band- Tenor Saxophone. She also participated in the “Lion King" school play. Her love of animals led her to do volunteer work at the Pegasus Riding Academy which provides equine therapy in Savannah. Her long-term goal is to attend college to become a Marine Biologist. Gracious, resourceful, positive are only a few of the numerous adjectives which describes this exceptional leader. She treats her peers and teachers with empathy and respect. At one point, she even took a stand against one of her own friends for bullying a classmate.
Franice states, "I am determined to get high grades (in order) to be accepted into Savannah Arts Academy; I know that my 7th grade GPA will help me obtain this goal."
Francie will receive multiple gifts from our community partners – Members First Credit Union, a one-topping small pizza certificate donated by Donato's Pizza; a gift certificates for cupcakes from J's Sweet Creations, and her class will receive printed copies of her favorite book sponsored by E. Shaver Booksellers. In addition, Francie will take home a portrait by Upscale Images Photography provided by Savannah-Chatham County Public Schools. Congratulations!
