Honors and High Honors – With the semester report cards we also hold a student recognition assembly to recognize the outstanding achievement of many of our students. This is when we recognize those students who have achieved either Honors or High Honors on their semester reports. Attached are the criteria used to determine if a student is to be awarded Honors or High Honors (SIS Honors – Middle School and SIS Honors – High School). Parents are welcome to attend the Student Recognition Assemblies this Wednesday, January 30. The MS assembly is 1:15-1:50 pm and the HS assembly is 2:40-3:15 pm. Both assemblies take place in the Bayside amphitheatre.
