This school year we will be recognizing one Affton student each month for the things that make them Affton Strong, both in and out of school. Our Affton Strong Student of the Month for November is:
Jonathan Perez – Gotsch Intermediate School
Jonathan is a fifth grade student at Gotsch Intermediate and is proud to be Affton Strong! Says his teacher, Eric Bowen, “Jonathon Perez has demonstrated improvement in the area of ‘commitment and reliability’ in his school work. He follows the classroom rules and is kind to others on a daily basis. Jonathon is Affton Strong!”
Family: Joyce Cox and Austin Bostic
Siblings: Adam, ninth grade, Desire’, sixth grade, and Lili, fourth grade — all of whom are Affton students!
What is your favorite subject? Specials, and especially PE. I really like roller skating and soccer. And I also like math, because it’s always encouraging when I do good.
What is something you’ve learned lately? When roller skating, you have to work with one foot and push to go faster.
What do you like to do for extracurricular activities or outside of school? I like to play with friends. We play tag and video games.
Who is your favorite teacher that you’ve ever had? My teacher this year, Mr. Bowen, because he’s always encouraging me to work really hard and to do better than I thought I could.
What do you want to be when you grow up? A famous soccer player.
If you could meet someone famous, who would you want to meet? Cristiano Ronaldo (forward for both the Real Madrid and Portuguese national soccer teams, where he also serves as captain) because he is always giving encouragement to his teammates and is always positive.
What has been your proudest moment? Last month when my mom got me a Ronoldo jersey for my birthday.
What do you want people to know about Affton Schools? There are a lot of nice people, and especially nice teachers. I really like Affton!
