Peyton Smith (Week of Feb. 8)

Posted by Jasmine Blanks on 2/8/2021

Even though Peyton will sit in class and talk to the inanimate wall, if I allowed him to, he is a true joy to have in class.  He keeps everyone on their toes with his academic wit and humor.  There is never a dull moment when he is in class. Congratulations Peyton!!

Mrs. Holaway says Peyton is a very smart and funny young man! He can literally talk to anyone or anything! I sure miss having your whit in class! Congrats on being named student athlete of the week!

Mr. Clark says Peyton Smith is the embodiment of a team player and has always stepped up to be a leader in the classroom holding his classmates accountable and lending a hand when needed during group/partner work.  He is a determined individual and I look forward to whatever else he sets his mind to because he is likely to accomplish it.

Ms. Wilson says I've only been Peyton's teacher for a short period of time, but he is definitely the life of my class. He adapted quickly to the type of class we have and has excelled ever since. He keeps everyone laughing and in good spirits all while completing his assignments. You're doing an awesome job! Congratulations on being our student athlete of the week.

Congratulations, Peyton! You have consistently worked hard and been a much valued member of the Pelican Family these last four years. I can't wait to see what your future has in store for you. Your ability to show up daily will open many doors for you. Keep grinding!

Ms. Roger says You FINALLY made it as athlete of the week! I know you've been waiting for this moment to happen! You are an awesome young man, and I thoroughly enjoy having you in class. You impress me with your vocabulary and thought-provoking responses to questions. I'm so happy that I have the opportunity to get to know you this semester! Congratulations!

Mr. Sellers says Peyton is a great guy. He has a great attitude and positive outlook. Listening to him and Kentae joke with each other has often been the highlight of my day. Keep up the good work!

Coach Lewis says Peyton is the true definition of a hard worker. He definitely worked his way up in Athletics even overcoming a major injury to get some significant playing time as a senior. Very respectable and a joy to be around. I look forward to seeing his progress in life over the next few years.
