Captain of the Month--Mr. Clayton Moon
At Ninth Grade Academy, we are excited to have a non-traditional employee recognition program, in which students nominate the staff members who make a difference and are exceptional. This month, we would like to recognize Mr. Clayton Moon, who was nominated by student Aiden Potter. Aiden, a student in Mr. Moon's class, writes, “Coach Moon deserves to be Captain of the Month because of his influence on his students in the classroom as well as the weight room. He always teaches us to try our best, all while helping us learn the importance of building up to accomplish a task. Coach Moon always goes above and beyond when it comes to his job; he never does the bare minimum. When we need to learn how to accomplish a task, he will teach us. If we still need help, he will show us. To top it off, he always likes to throw in some comic relief which always makes our day. Thanks, Coach Moon, “Eye of the Bobcat.”
Mr. Moon, thank you for helping to make NGA such a special place!
