Eight students from Cottage Grove Middle School were selected as "Students of Excellence" for January. Students and their families were honored at a breakfast ceremony Jan. 10. The students were nominated by one of their teachers.

Each student represents the outstanding qualities present in students of excellence; Responsibility, Integrity, Compassion, Commitment. Introductions, made by each nominating teacher, described in detail why each student was selected.

"We're very proud of these students," Principal Elise Block said. "They are doing a great job contributing to the positive climate of Cottage Grove Middle School."

The Cottage Grove Middle School recognition committee supports and organizes the monthly event.
