For October, junior Allie DeGroff and seventh-grader Lily Bolden were nominated as Bergan's Knight Code Students of the Month.
Mr. Michael Briganti selected Allie and his reasoning was "[Allie] has very rarely been seen without a positive attitude towards her classmates and/or the learning environment. She brings an enthusiasm to the classroom that can be contagious. She is respectful to her teachers and classmates and their time in class by working diligently to complete all assignments and actively participating in all class activities. She is not afraid to be wrong when she volunteers answers in class and accepts criticism with grace. Furthermore, she vivaciously supports her classmates at sporting events and retreats when she is not helping dominate the volleyball court."
Mrs. Maggie Winterlin nominated Lily as October's middle school student. She wrote "Lily is a wonderful student. She comes to class everyday ready to contribute and is always looking to go above and beyond what is expected of her. She obviously has high standards for herself and it shows in the quality of work she does. She is an enormous asset to Bergan's music department."
