Not only is Cale Cool the Pizza Factory Jackson St. School Student of the Week, but he was also selected as the Free and Accepted Masons Howard Lodge #37 All-around Student of the Year. Below is Kelly Velarde’s write up on him.
Share on Facebook
The 8th grade teachers of Jackson Street School unanimously nominated Cale Cool as our “All Around Student” of the year. He stands out as being at the top of his class academically, but more importantly, he is a model human being. Recently, another student described Cale as being “nice to everyone; he doesn’t make fun of anyone.” This is a very high compliment in the junior high world. Cale is very flexible and comfortable when working with all sorts of groups. He embodies what we all would like to see in our students. He takes full advantage of what we offer at Jackson Street. He would learn on his own, but he doesn’t mind taking a little direction now and then. He adds much to class discussions and is a pleasure to have in class.
Cale is an athlete on our Basketball team, and the same effort he puts forth in class is evident on the court. He was also a member of the Math team which required putting in extra hours of study and practice. Whenever he misses class for a school activity or for personal reasons, he always makes sure to get the work assigned and completes it. He also checks in to see if he has done the work correctly because Cale cares about maximizing his education.
Cale will be a credit to our town one day. We will all be proud to say we know him. We congratulate him and are happy to recognize him with this honor.

It’s a good idea to check with the individual schools to make sure games are still a go…just saying. Don’t blame us if you get there and no one else is there. Also, there may be some games not on the schedule because coaches haven’t posted on MaxPreps or haven’t sent SiskiyouYouth.com a schedule.
