The “Student of the Bloc” is a prestigious award given to one student after progress reports are completed at the end of each bloc. After final grades and benchmarks are tallied, faculty advisors then feel compelled to nominate students and argue for why they should be given the reward. Nominations are then backed up with the recorded benchmarks for grades and attendance, effort in their classes and Personal Skills and their relative contributions to the community as a whole. These contributions to our community include following the rules, doing a good job during our maintenance hour, keeping a clean cabin or dorm room, showing leadership amongst peers and staying out of the drama. Once a student is given this reward, they are then placed on our Student of the Bloc Wall of Fame where they will be remembered forever.
Our Students of the Bloc for 2017-18 school year:
Bloc 1: Kaito Wandeevong
Kaito joined the CTA community last year as a freshman and has begun this tenth-grade year in full stride, earning honor roll and setting new standards in our outdoor pursuits program. A native to Las Vegas, Kaito has quickly adjusted to the Colorado lifestyle. He has learned to mountain bike, ski and backpack, and he continues to show strengths as an adventure athlete. Kaito has established himself amongst his peers as confident and stable minded friend to everyone. His calming demeanor is contagious to all of us! Kaito’s plans for the future are to attend a four college and possibly seek a bachelor of arts in English literature.
