Several Thomaston Grammar School students were recognized for their respectfulness at a school-wide Zoom assembly Thursday, Oct. 1.

The children who earned this recognition for respect show the following attributes: they are active listeners and problem solvers with peers, they accept direction from adults, and they know that TGS is a place of learning and of building relationships with each other.

Leah McLellan was also presented with this month’s Principal’s Award.

McLellan, as stated in a press release to The Courier-Gazette, "is a prime example of someone who is continuously safe and kind and always tries her best. She is responsible, respectful, trustworthy, honest and so much more. She cares about her classmates and her greater school community and is consistently willing to do whatever she can to make our community a great place to be.

"She is an excellent student, classmate and friend… She is a welcome addition to any classroom and does not need reminders to make good choices; those choices come naturally to her. We are very lucky to have Leah as a member of the Thomaston Grammar School community."

Congratulations to all the students who received awards at TGS this month, including Noah Blakey, Ava Chamberlin, Ella Chamberlin, Wyatt Earley, Evelyn Fairfield, Beckett Haskell, McKenzie Liddell, Isabella O’Clair, Swayze Prior, Oliver Quinn, Iris Quint, Addyson Schultz and Norah Smith.
