Students of the Week

Every week, during the school year, a SJE staff member is asked to select a student who is exemplifying the pillars of character: trustworthiness, caring, respect, responsibility, fairness or citizenship in either grades K-2 or 3-5. The student is given a certificate and nomination letter to take home and is asked to bring in pictures or items to be placed on the bulletin board in the front hall. Being selected as the "Student of the Week" is a huge honor for our students and is a way for us to celebrate the students who come to school and model the expected behaviors for ALL of us.
