Savanna Oaks Middle School Student Recognition

Monday, April 20, 2015

 Max Kassel and Kyllan Wunder

It is because of Max Kassel and Kyllan Wunder’s leadership at Stoner Prairie’s after-school Minecraft program that they have attracted visitors from other districts, as well as our own district interested in using Minecraft with students.  Max has created multiple learning opportunities and experiences for our students that wouldn't have existed without his leadership.  Kyllan has helped us to integrate circuitry and Makey Makeys into both after school opportunities, as well as at our Science Fair this year.  Max and Kyllan were also two original digidweebs for Savanna Oaks, a job to utilize their technology talents and interests and help others.

 Kadia Fau

Kadia Fau is a pleasure to have as a part of our Savanna Oaks community. She is an extremely strong student who is driven to figure out new concepts and to present her unique perspectives on topics. Additionally, Kadia loves a challenge. She is excited to learn. Kadia is a strong leader, admired by her peers, both in and out of the classroom. Her kindness, respect for others, and charismatic personality make her magnetic. Outside of school, Kadia is very active in her church and a program called Madison Mission where she volunteers extensively in the community. She is an outstanding young adult who is a wonderful member of the Savanna Oaks community.
