Principal Greeting

Cardinal Head High School Student of the Month

Leadership skills and hard work led Alexis Krebs to be named the March 2016 Upsala High School Student of the Month.  Alexis has been in many leadership roles this year including: President of 4H, Secretary of both the Upsala FFA and Student Council.  She is also involved in Drama, Knowledge Bowl, Volleyball and Track.  Ms. Krebs has been consistently on the “A” honor roll and has been selected subject area student of the month in various subjects.  Alexis is active outside of school with her church, 4H and helping the Sobieski Lions with different projects. 

Alexis’s favorite class is Band.  “I really enjoy learning my part in the songs we play and hearing it blend with everyone else’s.  It makes you feel good when you hear it blend beautifully.  We also just got back from the band trip to New York and that was pretty fun.”  Alexis feels that the most valuable activity she is involved in is FFA, because it prepares you for your future by interviewing you for chapter office and helping you gain public speaking skills.”
 Mathematics teacher Jessica Hovland said, “Alexis is a very neat lady with one of the best work ethics that I have seen.  She is very intelligent and works hard until she completely understands the concepts.  She is always willing to help other students with their work and will often go above and beyond what is asked and never complains.  She is very deserving of this award.”

Alexis enjoys watching Grey’s Anatomy, drawing, shopping and hanging out with friends.  In the future she sees herself going to college and starting a family.  The advice that Alexis has for her classmates came from a saxophone player that she met on the band trip and has really stuck with her.  Her advice is “Don’t let your laziness steal your talents whether it be drawing, a sport, or playing an instrument.”

Cardinal Head Junior High Student of the Month

Alison Harren has been chosen as the March Upsala Junior High Student of the Month. She is the eighth grade daughter of Mike and Kim Harren. In school, Harren participates in Junior High Volleyball, basketball, and softball. She has been on the “A” honor roll every quarter.  

Alison says that all classes are valuable but her favorite class is Math, because “Mrs. Hovland makes math fun to learn”. Outside of school she enjoys hanging out with her friends and family, playing sports and driving four-wheeler.  

“Ali has been a great student to work with this year, ” said Jessica Hovland, Mathematics Teacher.  “She is always willing to try new things and doesn’t give up.  Her positive attitude and friendliness encourages others around her to do the same.  She is a great leader in her class and is very deserving of this award.” Ms. Harren’s advice to her classmates is, “Always have a good attitude”.
