Sadie Vancelette, age 12 and a student at Windham Middle School is The Windham Eagle’s Student of the Week. The seventh grader enjoys field hockey, robotics club, Be The Influence club and sports.
“Sadie has been selected for Student of the Week for her motivation to open the school store last year,” stated her teacher. “Sadie had an idea to re-open the store after [it] being dormant for a few years. Sadie has managed every aspect of the store from advertising, to budget, to interviewing and hiring volunteers, to staff the store. I have seen few students with her drive and passion in my 15 years in education. Sadie represents all of our core values of respect, responsibility, integrity, and compassion.”
Vancelette states that her parents play an important role in her education because they have always motivated her to be the best she can be. Hands on learning such as her STEM and clay sculpture classes are her favorite ways to learn and she plans to attend MIT when she goes to college.
Vancelette lives at home with her dad, mom, little sister and dog, Sisko.
