Hailea LaCarte, the CASMAN Academy Student of the Week, shudders against the cold as she stands next to the street sign naming the school circle in her honor. Hailea was selected by the teachers and staff at CASMAN Academy with comments like; "She has excellent grades in my room and consistently brings a positive attitude and good work ethic to class. Hailea is engaged and is always prepared to answer questions in class discussions.  She is a great self-advocate. Hailea has used our Flex Friday system to the fullest; she successfully earns most Fridays off but occasionally comes in on Fridays and when she's here, she's all about cranking out the work. Her humor and upbeat personality are a positive addition to the classroom. She is truly a leader amongst her peers and I am always glad to have her in class. Today she even told me that her New Years Resolution was to stop swearing in school!", "I think her positive attitude and friendly demeanor make her a wonderful role model for other students. She is also someone who is incredibly self-driven. She holds herself to her own standards, and by golly she is going to accomplish what she wants!!", "Hailea is working ahead in my class - and is also very encouraging to other students who are struggling.  Hailea has proven time and again that she is a positive role model for her fellow students.  She is very helpful to students and staff, and she always has a sense of humor to support herself and others throughout the day.", and "Hailea is a great student!  She is always keeping up on her work and is never satisfied with a standard response.  She is a deep thinker who considers multiple angles to a problem.  She works great with others and is always willing to offer up insight and encouragement."
