December Panther of the month

PJ Murphy, a 6th grader on Panther team, was chosen as December’s Panther of the Month. He is a very hardworking student, who loves participating in school as well as extra-curricular activities.

In school, PJ likes to focus on his work and strives to become an even better student. He also plays for the school’s sixth grade basketball team. When asked what he likes to do outside of school, he replied, “I play sports like baseball, basketball and football.”

Mrs. Regan, his reading teacher, had this to say: “He is an all around good student. He does well academically, but more importantly, he has a heart of gold and is kind to everyone. He is outgoing and loves a challenge!”

PJ looks up to his parents the most and said, “They’re good role models. They always do the right thing.” When he is older, he aspires to be a professional athlete in one of his favorite sports. If that doesn’t work out, he’d like to be a doctor. He isn’t sure what kind of doctor, but he wants to help people. PJ wants to be successful in anything that he does, so either profession would be a good choice for him.

Overall, PJ Murphy is an amazing student and wonderful choice for Panther of the Month!

Congrats, PJ!

November student of the month

Noah Petrewski, a seventh grader on the white team, is November's Panther of the Month. His reading teacher Mrs. Berardinelli says, "He is a hardworking student who always does his best. He is always kind to others and helpful." He shows what being a panther truly is.

Besides being an exceptional student, he would like to try out for basketball. He says that, "Basketball is my favorite sport. I love to go out on the court and have fun playing with my friends!" Additionally, he voiced that he is thinking of joining the Ski Club if he doesn't get on the basketball team.

His absolute favorite subject in school is math. He enjoys solving equations, though he admits that some can be quite challenging. His preferred teacher is Mrs. Beradinelli. However, he doesn't particularly like reading.

Noah answered that his role model is his mother. "She's always there when I need her, and I couldn’t ask for a better mother." He wishes to travel to California in the future with her for a vacation.

Noah seeks to go to Penn State University after he graduates High School. Noah confessed, "I don't know what I want to be yet, but I do know I'm going to be someone great!" He offered the following advice to the students of Northeast: "Keep trying and always keep your head up."

Noah is an excellent role model for all, and that's why he is November's Panther of the Month!

Congrats, Noah!

September Panther of the month

Yisel Peralta, an 8th grader on the Green Team, was recently named September’s Panther of the Month! Her teachers say, “Yisel is sweet and hardworking. She has a great outlook on life!”
Yisel’s favorite school subject has always been English because she loves writing! She is involved in the school newspaper, the medical college’s Reach-HEI program, and National Junior Honors Society. More importantly, she also enjoys giving back to the community! She volunteered at Geisinger Community Medical Center this past summer and loved every minute of it!
“It’s always important to help people. Even if it’s something little, at least I’m doing something for others in their time of need,” Yisel said. She is living proof that a smile really is worth a thousand words!
Additionally, Yisel is determined to meet her future goals! One goal is to continue helping people by working in the medical field. She hopes to become either a physician’s assistant or an anesthesiologist. However, her biggest ambition is “to never lose myself through all the challenges that life brings and to keep smiling!”
When asked who inspires her most, Yisel responded, “My mom because she is always there for me and supports everything I do! Overall, she is caring, independent, and a great role model.”
Yisel Peralta proves that being hardworking, positive, and determined can lead to success! She is a shining example of a true Panther!
