Montini Catholic is proud to recognize their students receiving Student of the Month accolades for December/January. "Each month we recognize those students who make our school community a better place," said Activities Director and teacher, Andrew Weisenburger, who initiated the campaign honoring extraordinary students. "They truly represent and uphold our Lasallian values and traditions here at Montini." Faculty and staff members are given the opportunity to nominate the student they believe best deserves the honor each month. (Due to the short school month in December, the December and January months were combined.)
December/January Bronco honorees are:
