Affton Strong Student of the Month | February 2015

This school year we will once again 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 February is:

Jonathan McMahon – Rogers Middle School

Jonathan is an eighth-grader at Rogers Middle School and is proud to be Affton Strong! “Jonathan is new to Rogers this year but has made a lasting impression on all of us,” says Mary Beth Graefe, guidance counselor. “He is considered to be one of the most respectful students in the building.”

Father: Brad McMahon

What do you like best about Rogers Middle School?

I like the clubs they have here after school, especially Weightlifting and Anime. I can hang out with my friends and do things that interest me.

What is your favorite subject?

Social Studies, because I think history is interesting and I like to learn about things that happened. It’s like a mystery. I am fascinated by studying what has happened in history

What is something you’ve learned lately?

We just learned about Andrew Jackson and what he did as president.

What do you want to be when you grow up?

An FBI Agent. I want to feel like I can help people, to be a part of the government and make a difference.

What do you like to do for extracurricular activities or outside of school?

I play in the Affton Basketball League, and am part of the Boys Intramurals, Weightlifting and Anime Clubs.

If you could meet anyone famous, who would you want to meet?

I’d like to meet Will Smith. He’s a pretty cool actor and I like a lot of his movies.

What has been your proudest moment?

Being able to be close to everyone even though I’ve moved a lot. Keeping in touch with friends is important to me.

What do you want people to know about Affton Schools?

As an Army Brat, I’ve been to a lot of schools, and Affton is one of the smaller schools I’ve gone to but also one of the nicest. Don’t judge a book by the cover. People are nice here and you’ll like what you find.
