February Students of the Month


February Students of the Month Named


Crystaliz Sanchez and Olivia Mayorga have been named Students of the Month for February at Saint Bernard School.

Crystaliz, 14, of New London, is a ninth-grader. At school, she participates in soccer. Outside of school, she volunteers at her church and participates in its choir.

Faculty members say Crystaliz strives to do her best work, participates in class, and is conscientious of her work. She also goes above and beyond as a friend to help her peers.

Olivia, 11, of Mystic, is a sixth-grader. At school, she plays basketball, tennis and lacrosse, and plays cello in the string ensemble. Outside of school, she plays cello in a chamber group. She was recently accepted into the CT All State Elementary Honors Orchestra. Teachers describe her as kind and always willing to help others.

Both girls are in their first year as a student at Saint Bernard School. Crystaliz says the small community feeling appeals to her, while Olivia enjoys the community service aspect of student life.

“I like that there are a lot of good programs that help other children from around the world,” Olivia says, referring to the Friday morning pocket change collections to help students in Haiti.
