During a special academics awards assembly, Pulaski High School Principal Jay Altobello was joined by former Middle School Principal Jean Lynch and current Middle School Principal Michael Bateson in presenting the awards to the students.
“This ceremony is to recognize those students who have put in the time and effort to be successful in school,” said Altobello, adding “when you do those things, good things happen.”
The principals went on to announce the more than 180 names of those students who achieved an overall average last year of 85 or better, which placed them on the honor roll. The achievement was accomplished by more than half of the total high school student population, an incredible feat.
Other awards were presented including the prestigious Snow Incentive Award for the 2012-13 school year.
Snow Incentive Award winners included: Grade 9: Kelly Bushell, Austin Monson, Lydia Marino, Gabriel Aguilar, James Morrissette, Shelby Goodsell, Jennifer Shampine, Samantha Nutting, Abigail Bonanno, and Samantha Dawes. Grade 10: Isabel Engelbrekt, Jacklyn Foster, Aleah LaFlamme, Craig Gibbons, Ty Kranz, Nicholas Allen, Ashley Monroe, Darby Leaf, Grade Farell, and Kaitlynn Peacock. Grade 11: Joseph Falciatano, Kathryn Paye, Elizabeth Monnat, Shelby Sheehan, Annamarie Forestiere, Leonard Marino, William Delgado, Spencer Glenister, Kyle Glenister, and Breann Burns.
The assembly represented an academic kick-off for the school year to keep the focus on academics and highlight student success.
