End of the Year Awards Ceremony

On June 21st the middle school came together to celebrate their accomplishments.  Mr. Martillotta and his band played celebratory music as the student body entered the auditorium.  Mrs. Berg announced the winners with the help of Mrs. Snook and Mr. Pritchard. The upbeat ceremony was an excellent way to end the school year. 

Ozzy Matos is this year's recipient of the Principal's Award. The Principal's Award has a long-standing tradition in the middle school. The award criterion identifies a student that has shown growth in academics, behavior, character and overall mindset.

Before announcing the winner, Mr. Pritchard told the student body, "At one point or another in our lives we will face difficult obstacles and adversity.  How we respond to those moments will help to define who we become.  The individual receiving the Principals Award this year has shown the ability to be resilient, be a leader among peers, shown growth in character, and has maintained very respectable grades.  We are hopeful that the growth this student has shown will continue and we wish them the very best in high school."
