Awards

OUTSTANDING YOUNG CHRISTIAN AWARD:

This award is given to that student who expresses in word and action Christian attitudes and values in class and on the playground; who is conscientious of his/her fellow classmates’s feelings and needs; who is willing to help and share at any time; who participates in class and school activities by always trying to put others first.  The students in each class vote for a girl and boy recipient.   

HIGHEST SCHOLASTIC AWARD:

Given to that student in each homeroom who attains the highest grade point average. 

PRESIDENT’S EDUCATION AWARD :

This award was established to encourage students to achieve high academic standards by recognizing and rewarding them for educational excellence.  To be eligible for this award, students at the fifth grade level must meet the following requirements:

a.  Students are to earn a grade point average of  90 on a 100 point scale for Grade 4 and the Fall semester of Grade 5.  

b.  Achieve in the 85th percentile or higher in math or reading on the latest standardized achievement test.

PRESIDENT’S AWARD FOR EDUCATIONAL ACHIEVEMENT:

The purpose of this award is to recognize students who show outstanding educational growth, improvement, commitment or intellectual development in their academic subjects, but do not meet the criteria for the President’s Award for Educational Excellence.  This award should not be compared to the President’s Award for Educational Excellence nor seen as a second-tier award, because it recognized a very different type of academic achievement.  It is meant to encourage and reward students who work hard and give their best effort in school, in many cases in the face of special obstacles to learning. 

AMERICAN CITIZENSHIP AWARD:

This award is designed to recognize the student that consistently exhibits the kinds of behaviors we want to see displayed in our schools and in our communities.

This student is always prepared in class, has his homework finished on time and always plays fair and treats everyone with respect.  He exemplifies the desirable behavior we all want to encourage.

DEANNA PILLARO MEMORIAL AWARD:

Given to that student who shows an extraordinary interest in the library and in reading, displays Christian values, and contributes service to the school.  The student’s name is engraved on the plaque in the library.

CELIA PICARD “LITTLE LIGHT” MUSIC AWARD:

This music award is given to the fifth grade student who has shown joy in singing and a love of music.  This student sings with heartfelt joy in class, in programs, and at holy mass.  This student is a “little light” to lead the way through the joys of singing. 

PRINCIPAL’S LIST AND HONOR ROLL:
