Principal Greeting

Cardinal Head High School Student of the Month

Congratulations to sophomore, Stefani Pohlmann, the February Upsala High School Student of the Month. She is the daughter of Mary and Bill Pohlmann of Elmdale, Minnesota.

A past recipient of Subject Area Student of the Month and UHS Student of the Month, Stefani shows great promise for her post-high school academic career. She is diligent in her studies, meticulous in her work, and demonstrates a positive, can-do attitude toward every task. Stefani has attained “A Honor Roll” status throughout her tenure at UHS and is involved with various activities including National Honor Society, Knowledge Bowl, and Student Council. She is also a valued member of the UHS band and theatre group, as well as volleyball, basketball, and softball. Stefani received the Prairie Conference All Academic Award and was selected as a Prairie Conference Honorable Mention in volleyball.

Stefani’s science teacher Haylee Vershure stated, “Stefani is such a joy to have in class. She comes to class every day prepared to learn with a smile on her face. She stays engaged in learning with her positive attitude and an open mind. Stefani is a wonderful leader and role model for her peers. Her patience, personality, and hard work ethic will make her a fantastic addition to the teaching profession. Great job Stefani!””

Out of school, Stefani likes to read, listen to music, and hang out with her friends. She has a part time job in the Upsala community and has participated with a number of community service projects through her membership in the National Honor Society. After graduation, Stefani plans to become a high school math teacher. She believes English is her most valuable class because “it’s used in everything, every day.” She most enjoys her choir class because “it’s a great way to end my day and there is never homework! When asked what advice she would give her fellow classmates Stefani said, “Keep up with your work because once you get behind, it is hard to get back on track.”

Congratulations to you, Stefani. You are a great example of the awesome students we have at Upsala High School.

Cardinal Head Junior High Student of the Month

Laura is an active individual both in and out of the school setting. Lange participates in Junior High Volleyball, Basketball and Softball. She has been on the “A” honor roll and was also recognized in 7th grade as the September JH student of the month.

Her favorite class is Art, because “I like to create things, be unique, use
different colors and shapes to create things.” However she feels her most
important activity is participation in sports. Sports are valuable because they have teach self-discipline, sportsmanship and leadership skills. When Lange has free time, she enjoys spending it with friends, reading, playing sports or shopping.

“Laura is amazing to have in class,” said Jay Hovland, Mathematics
Teacher. “She is a soft-spoken leader at this school and is always setting a great example for other students. Her positive attitude and respect for herself and others make her a leader worth following. Laura is very deserving of this recognition.”

Lange’s advice for her classmates is “Give your teachers the respect they deserve.”
