De'Ajah Stephens: November Student of the Month

Marietta City Schools is proud to announce De’Ajah Stephens, a 5th grade student at Sawyer Road Elementary School, as its District November Student of the Month.

De’Ajah took on the challenge of starting the new school year off virtually with an open mind and giving her all, always prepared, and ready for class. Her teacher says she consistently demonstrates Sawyer Road’s core values of being engaged and respectful: in her positive attitude toward learning and her relationships with her peers and teachers.

An extremely responsible student, De’Ajah eagerly shares her thoughts in class discussions, asking for clarification or further explanation when she needs it. De’Ajah and her family visit the public library often and she loves to share a favorite book she has enjoyed with her classmates.

Her teachers say she is a joy to have at Sawyer Road. Each morning, she greets everyone she sees, and even though she is wearing a facemask, you can tell she has a smile on her face.

We congratulate De’Ajah Stephens for being recognized as the November District Student of the Month!
