Anastasia McAdams of Batavia was recently named one of Great River Connections Academy’s (GRCA) Students of the Month in recognition of her outstanding achievements and leadership in the virtual classroom.
“Our students of the month demonstrate leadership and an extraordinary commitment to learning while serving as strong role models for their peers,” said Jason Swinehart, Principal at Great River Connections Academy. “The members of our faculty and staff are proud to give these virtual classroom leaders the recognition they deserve.”
Anastasia is a fourth grader at Great River Connections Academy. According to her mother, Janie, they enrolled Anastasia in the online school last year to be in a more individualized learning environment.

According to Anastasia, she believes her teachers are very personable and always available to help.
“Anytime I don’t understand something they are right there,” she said.
