Mylo Ibarra

“Mylo is a great student. He is a student who works hard. He enjoys school and he enjoys helping his friends with their Math homework when they need it. He is always willing to go the extra mile and from a conversation with Mr. Freer his math teacher, he is a joy to have in class. He keeps class exciting and is very in tune with everyone’s safety and well being. For those reasons and more, I would like to nominate Mylo Ibarra for the ES3 award.

Mylo is an amazing student who is respectful, thoughtful, and works very hard to be a great example to his peers. Mylo is always willing to help others and is a good friend. I was blessed to be his teacher and love seeing the impact he is making on a new campus. He truly is a wonderful all-around student who deserves recognition for the contributions he brings to the classroom and campus.”

She also works to assist students so that they get on the right school bus, get to their class and to make them feel happy. She loves school, loves being at Dodd as she was at Dyer last year. She also works to help other students who are new to the school feel safe- because she is an experienced Safety Patrol officer . :-) If you ask her teachers they will all tell you that she is kind, dedicated and eager to please.”

Maintenance Department

“I just think that the maintenance crew is a very under-appreciated group that supports the school in several ways.; but their effort cleaning the football stadium for all of the home games is very impressive and should be noticed because without them we wouldn't have the freshly cleaned stands and sidewalks which are greatly appreciated.”
