"In Related Arts and PLTW Alena always makes good choices and is helpful to everyone around her. Her positive attitude and smile are contagious as she continues to "Do The Right Thing and Treat People Right" to uphold the SWES motto. Every day Alena follows directions and does her personal best on each project or activity she is assigned in all these classes. While remaining quiet and orderly, she doesn't hesitate responding to questions when she knows the answers and never complains when given direction. Alena is respectful to everyone in the room, and she is respected in return for showing her ability to be a good friend. These are just a few of the qualities that make us all 5 proud to call Alena Hindbaugh the Student of the Month for March!"
