FALLBROOK – The Rotary Club of Fallbrook, which recognizes Students of the Month at different schools in the Fallbrook Elementary School District, honored students from Maie Ellis Elementary School in January.

Maie Ellis principal Dr. Edie Powers presented students Ellie Putnam and Aundrea Prefontaine as the January Students of the Month to the Rotary Club at a recent weekly luncheon. Maie Ellis is a dual-immersion (English and Spanish) magnet school and Putnam and Prefontaine were recognized for leading by example and making a difference for other students.

Putnam, who is in first grade, shared in both English and Spanish how she is being a leader by being kind and helping others. She makes goals and works hard to meet them. When her friends are sad, she gives them hugs.

Prefontaine, a sixth-grader, shared how her favorite habit is "Finding your Voice," which means standing up for yourself and others. She doesn't let other people push her down, which means she is being a leader.

The Student of the Month program is part of an ongoing effort by the Rotary Club of Fallbrook to encourage and reward student excellence and achievement. For more information, see
