Student All-Stars: Waverly Elementary School

Posted on: May 11, 2018

At the first annual GAPS Student All-Stars Celebration, the School Board honored outstanding students from each school. Students were nominated by school staff and introduced by the school principal.

The All-Star Students from Waverly were unable to attend. Principal Anne Griffith read their nominations.

Waverly Elementary School All-Stars are: 

Adelaide Riley

Adelaide is an enthusiastic learner who loves a good challenge. She has been working on The 4 Fours Challenge, (which stumps a lot of adults) and is making a stop-motion animation movie about the different meanings of subtraction. Adelaide is a strong, confident student who understands how to be a leader as well as a team player. We need more people like Adelaide in our world and I am so grateful that she is a part of our community of learners.

Caelan Riley

Caelan is a leader for positive behavior. He always tries his best and treats all students with respect. All of his classmates want to be his partner and friend!

School Board honors Student All-Stars at special meeting

Posted on: May 7, 2018

Tonight, the School Board recognized students from each school in the district for their citizenship and outstanding school and community service. The event was the first annual Recognition of Student All-Stars awards ceremony, held at South Albany High School.

In a move away from student all-star recognition at School Board meetings, the special ceremony was a festive opportunity to praise students for their efforts and character that doesn’t compete with School Board business each month and ensures that families can better celebrate their kids’ achievements.

Students were nominated by school staff. Principals from each school presented the certificates to students, who shook hands with all School Board members and posed for a school photos. In all, 44 students were recognized.

Principal comments and school photos will be posted for each school this week.
