To be an honored student, there are a few things that you must do to be qualified, these are in accordance with the vision statement proposed by the school district:
- You must be respectful of your peers and your teachers
- You are responsible for your actions
- Using application of knowledge in the right way
- Displays moral courage
I asked freshman language arts teacher Mark Mercier about what he thinks qualifies to get an honored student letter.
“I look for independent ability in a student, a student solving a problem by themselves, or just doing an assignment for me that was far better than I was expecting.”
The next person I interviewed was freshman Sarah Cloutier.
“How did you become an honored student? Any special tricks to keep you going?”
“Well my older brother has always been working hard to get good grades so he set the path that I followed. Also my parents always push me to do good. Lastly I'd like to stay in my sports so good grades keep me going”
The only way to become an honored student is to stay on top/ahead of your work, be respectful and responsible, and being kind to others. You must strive to succeed in school, and if you’re really looking for some specific examples, make sure to check out the RSU57 Vision Statement!
