Each month, all middlers congregate in 7 East to celebrate our community and hear messages or reminders about upcoming items around campus. These sessions are led by our eighth-grade students and Mrs. Riker, Dean of Students. During Monday’s meeting, a handful of awards were presented to our well deserving students, including:
- a FANschool award to Mikail Jaffer, who earned the highest score over a 12-week current event challenge among the eighth-grade students;
- a recognition of all 25 entries to this year’s FilmFest, including a special award to Vincent Menichelli for five years of participation;
- a presentation of 10 certificates to the students who participated in the Lehigh Valley Science Fair;
- a presentation of poetry prizes to the 10 sixth-grade students who will be published in the summer edition of Creative Communications; and
- a recognition of the entire cast and crew from this year’s spring drama, @Alice’s Adventures in #Wonderland, by Touchstone Theatre’s Ms. Emma Ackerman.
Awards season will continue throughout this month when music awards, additional science prizes, and global language awards are presented. The end of year awards assembly will also occur on Tuesday, June 5.
