Student Awards and Recognition

Superintendent Student Recognition Award 

Each year students are honored with the Superintendent Student Recognition Award. The district honors our students who have excelled academically as well as served as a role model to their peers. The selection process takes into account a student who embodies and exemplifies those characteristics consistently, particularly through these extraordinarily challenging times, as students transition to middle and high school and beyond!
