The September 2021 elementary student of the month at Ignite Christian Academy (ICA) is Avery Fender, a 3rd grade student who would much rather eat sushi than mac and cheese or pizza. A student in her second year at ICA, Avery has already lived in four different time zones in her young life and currently calls central New Mexico home. While her teachers have enjoyed having Avery as a student, Avery has enjoyed the flexibility online schooling gives her family to travel around the country.
“Avery has been diligently working on her assignments,” wrote elementary teacher Marianne Jeffries. “She even submitted double the work for two of her tests. She did not let these extended testing times discourage her. She kept working hard and is continuing to excel in her academics. I am nominating her for her perseverance in her schoolwork.”
