The Underclassmen Awards Event gives an opportunity for faculty from each department to honor students in the 9th -11th grades who have excelled in a particular course.
Typically, around 50 students are recognized and given a leather-bound certificate as well as a treat.
Associate Principal Knight works with faculty to gather honorees, creates the Evite to parents and prints the certificates.
The chair of the event works with Ms. Knight to:
identify a date and location
purchase decorations (such as balloons, tablecloths, flowers, etc.) and treats
help to set up the event including working with the custodial staff for tables/chairs, decorating with above items -- - attend and assist as appropriate during the event and cleans up at the conclusion
communicate as necessary with other faculty and teachers.
Typically the event is held in the late Spring on campus in the afternoon,
