Each month, staff members representing each curricular area nominate students for this recognition. Students are invited to attend a Deans’ Breakfast given in their honor where their actions are recognized. Students receive a certificate of accomplishment in addition to a commemorative pen. The student characteristics that are considered by the staff in making their nominations include the following:
  • responsibility,
  • diligence and perseverance in school work,
  • positive attitudes towards classmates and teachers,
  • kindness and empathy for fellow classmates,
  • helpfulness to teachers and staff,
