ABOUT RAMS OF THE MONTH
Our Rams of the Month are outstanding students who display our District 87 Profile of a Graduate tenets which include evidence of communication, critical thinking, embracing diversity, creation, collaboration, or self-empowerment within their classrooms or extracurriculars. These students were nominated by staff and are deserving of our recognition. Ms. Alexandria Taylor, Assistant Principal for Student Services, personally recognizes these students each month. Congratulations to all!
Areej is an incredible asset to our first period English class. She regularly demonstrates her ability to think critically and her annotations in our first unit demonstrates a keen insight and ability to understand the nuances of the stories we read. Her strengths also extend to group dynamics where Areej is ready to contribute to discussions, but is also quick to bring others into the discussion, posing questions and encouraging further explanation. A stellar student for sure.
It is without hesitation that the Business and FaCS department honor Sean Fisher as our first “Ram of the Month” this school year. Sean exudes each characteristic that makes up a quality “Ram of the Month.” He leads by example both socially and academically. Specific to the Business and FaCs departments, he has taken a variety of the courses offered since his freshman year and has excelled in all of them. Sean will be sorely missed next year when he graduates.
Angel is an excellent student that engages deeply in classroom conversations and is proactive in educating and engaging others. In Modern Issues, she consistently brings thoughtful questions, considerations, and observations to the class that further and deepen understanding for all. Furthermore, after discussing the danger and desperation many Afghans are facing with the fall of Kabul, Angel researched how to contact relevant members of Congress to advocate for greater resources and humanitarian response. She shared this resource via Schoology and discussed it with classmates to help give them a tool and guidance about how to communicate and advocate for issues to government officials who are in positions to create change. Her engagement and effort demonstrate the self-empowerment and communication skills of a Glenbard graduate.

She is an active listener and collaborates in order to inspire and motivate others towards a common purpose. She consistently demonstrates optimism and her positive attitude is contagious. She is a critical thinker and the perfect choice for the science department’s Ram of the Month!
