Grade 8 Citizenship Awards - June 23, 2022
Every year, the teachers at T.A. Norris Middle School nominate a small number of grade 8 students to receive Citizenship Awards which are presented at our year end Farewell ceremony. These awards are difficult to win and only the most deserving students receive them.
Students getting the award must work hard in school achieving grades that are appropriate to their ability level. Some winners are scholars and some are “grinders” but they all demonstrate a strong work ethic. Citizenship winners must also show leadership. This might include volunteering and committee work or just positive interaction within the classroom. Finally, the citizenship winners need to be well-liked by the students and the staff. Being cheerful, polite and helpful makes a person a good citizen.
In short, a student who wins a citizenship award at T.A. Norris is exactly the type of person who would make a great employee. Dependable, personable, helpful and hard working, our award winners would make any business manager proud.
This year, we are proud to announce that our Citizenship Awards went to Ella Bond, Matthew Burgoyne, Tracen Massier, and Farrah Villeneuve. Congratulations and thank you for shining your light at T.A. Norris Middle School!
