First Quarter Honors Assembly on Friday, November 9th

Dear Parents,

Just a quick heads up to let you know that our team will be holding a first quarter Honors Assembly on Friday, November 9th from 8:30 AM to 9:30 AM in the Salem Middle School Auditorium.

Students will be recognized in three different areas:

Academic Honor Roll: We will give out an Honor Roll (students with a 3.0 GPA on a 4 point scale) and a High Honor Roll (students with As in every class). We will not notify parents directly if students are receiving either type of academic honor roll certificate because you (or your child) can look that information up directly in PowerSchool. There are simply too many students on the Honor Roll or the High Honor Roll to email everyone!

Kids of Character Awards: Four students will be recognized for demonstrating outstanding character throughout the first quarter. Parents of students receiving Kids of Character awards will be notified by Bill Ferriter via email sometime next week.

Teacher’s Choice Awards: Sixteen students will be recognized by individual teachers on the Gnomes team — four per teacher — as "Teacher’s Choice Award Winners." These awards are given for a variety of reasons. Sometimes, the awards are given for outstanding academic performance in class. Other times, they are given for bringing thoughtful questions or contributions to class. Parents of children receiving Teacher’s Choice awards will also be notified by Bill Ferriter via email next week.

Parents are invited to attend our ceremony. Please know, however, that if we run out of seats in the auditorium, we might have to ask you to stand! We’ve got a big team this year, so my guess is that fitting everyone into our assemblies might be tight.

Hope this helps,
Bill Ferriter
