Principal's Notes

Students of the Month

Congratulations to Celina Antonellis, Kate Connerty, Laura Donovan, Michael Gingras, Chris Huber, Amanda Kennedy, Kevin Kong, Sisi Liu, Bryce McLaughlin,  and Justin Pang.  These students are being honored as our students of the month.  All of them were recognized as Commended Students by the National Merit Scholarship Program.  Commended Students are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise.  Over 1.5 million students took the 2012 PSAT, and the high achieving students listed above scored in the top 50,000. Some 16,000 of those high performers were recently designated semifinalists.  We are proud to report that Steven Pei has moved forward as a semifinalist.  We congratulate all of these students as this national recognition not only represents a significant achievement, but it firmly positions them in elite company in this competition that spans the country.
