We have two students for May!
We are very pleased to acknowledge Connor Bryant as the May Co-Student of the Month. Connor is the son of Nicole and Britt Bryant. Connor has been a student here at SES since kindergarten. His best memory of his time here is going to Washington D.C. and New York this past Spring, which was the farthest away from home he has traveled. Connor has played basketball and track for SES, and also plays basketball and baseball in the community. His favorite part of living here in Tuolumne County is our great community and the hiking options available to us. He believes the secret to success is being nice to others. His hobbies are being outside and playing basketball and baseball. He is also a huge Giants baseball fan. His teachers describe him as a student of great character, respectful, a leader, conscientious, and a hard worker. Great job, Connor!
