Landmark Students of the Month: January

Landmark works to instill 5 Vital Behaviors that will keep our students on the pathway to success, no matter what they choose to do with their lives. To promote these behaviors, we award Student of the Month accolades to 5 students who have excelled at one or more of these behaviors.

For the month of January those students are the following:

Attendance: Nelson Talavera has perfect attendance. No absences, no tardies.

What We're Learning: Anthropology


In Anthropology this terms, students are learning about how environment and culture interact to create unique human populations. To get a better understanding of this interplay, students did tests on soil samples to determine which soils were more likely to give rise to agricultural civilizations.

What we're learning: Biology


Recently, in Cope's and Emily's Biology classes, students conducted important experiments to help them understand DNA mutations. Possibly the most important lab student's have ever had... making pancakes!

The best way to learn is on a full stomach!

Dragons don't let Dragons fight cancer alone


Landmark is a family. Families support and are there for each other. This became even more evident this last year when our attendance secretary Michell Osborn became ill. Doctors had a difficult time determining the cause of her illness, it took months! Eventually she was diagnosed with Angioimmunoblastic T-Cell Lymphoma.  Her story has helped three other people get a proper diagnosis. We have missed her dearly; as she's been out since the end of last school year. Faculty and staff all showed their support and were able raise over $1000 to help with expenses.
