Mrs. Webster stated, “Addison is always cheerful, helpful, willing and kind. She practices her clarinet music until she can play it well and easily. She asks for help when she needs it and is always ready to fix problems. She goes beyond the notes on the page by adding dynamics and phrasing to make beautiful music.”
Hannah is in the 8th grade and her parents are Eric and Kristi Beran.  She has a sister, Sarah, who is in the 4th grade.
Mrs. Dohrman stated,  “Hannah quietly goes about her business and does the “right” thing.  She works hard and is kind to others.

Paxton participates in band, quiz bowl, football, basketball and track.  His favorite subjects in school are PE and English.  What Paxton likes best about school is, “Talking to his friends.”
Mrs. Webster said, “Paxton provides student leadership in the percussion section. He makes sure he learns his part and helps other learn their parts. On his own, he analyzes the total percussion parts and identifies areas that need work. Then he encourages his fellow percussionists to work their parts until they are right.”
Congratulations, Addison, Hannah and Paxton, for being selected as the CPMS Students of the Month.
