January Students of the Month


January Students of the Month Named


Two students have been recognized as the January Students of the Month at Saint Bernard School­ – Aubree Nygaard, sixth grade, and Katie Power, ninth grade.

Every month during the school year, the Student of the Month Committee selects one middle school student and one high school student for exhibiting the Xaverian Brothers spiritual values of humility, trust, zeal, compassion and simplicity.

The honorees

Aubree, 12, of East Haddam, is a member of the Girls Who Code club, middle school basketball and middle school band. Outside of school, she plays softball and participates in gymnastics.

Her teachers say she exhibits the qualities on which SBS builds an academic foundation. She is kind to others, always listens, and is a conscientious student.

“I like helping people inside and outside of school,” Aubree says.

Katie, 14, of Mystic, is a member of the school’s indoor track team, drama club, praise choir and band.

Teachers say Katie advocates for herself and has proven herself to be a good friend to others in need.

What Katie enjoys most about being a Saint Bernard Saint, she says, is “all the people and clubs/extra-curricular activities offered.”
