We are beyond proud to announce that not one, but two St. Martha students have been selected as Super Kids by Louisville Magazine. Anabelle R. and Brookelynn G. will be featured in a special edition of the magazine in November. Here’s a bit more about these outstanding students:
Anabelle R., 8th Grade
This past summer I completed my Girl Scout Silver Award, a 40+ hour service project. I noticed that there is a decline in the bee population and I wanted to save the bees! I worked with 2 other Girl Scouts to research bees and build mason bee homes so that bees will have a habitat and stay in our area. Bees are crucial to the survival of humanity, so we need to keep them alive and near our region where they pollinate vegetation in our area. We used recycled pallets to build the houses and learned how to use many power tools including a planer, electric saw, staple gun and drill. We painted and filled each home with bamboo and drilled wood with holes for the bees to borrow. We made 15 bee homes that were placed at Jefferson Memorial Forest, Waverly Park, Louisville Nature Center, and of course one at St. Martha and Girl Scout Camp Shanituck.
BrookeLynn G., 7th Grade
In school, I’m proud about my creativity in art and making honor roll. Out of school, I’m proud of my tumbling. I compete in three events: floor, trampoline and double mini. I have been tumbling since I was seven years old.
At the State competition I placed first on trampoline. I also won the High Point Award. This means out of all the athletes (of all ages) that competed at the intermediate level, I got the highest score. I also made the National All Star team this year. To make the All Star team I had to place in the top 3 out of about 70 girls ages 7-16.
