Student of the Week Lauren Morquecho '23: September 15, 2022
Lauren Morquecho '23, Mercy House, with Mrs. Mary Ollier
Lauren Morquecho is the Inter-House Captain for Mercy House. She is particularly skilled at welcoming, encouraging, and including her fellow students in activities and events. Lauren is upbeat and positive, and she's a champion for a student who may feel unincluded or is having a tough day. On schedule pick-up day, Lauren worked with native Spanish-speaking families to help those families complete the tasks needed for the start of the school year, and on Meet the Teacher night, she led our Family Room session by describing the academic, spiritual, emotional, and community benefits of Family Room and our House System.
