FULTON – More than 200 Fulton Junior High School students were recognized by building administration for achieving Very Important People status in the first marking period.
A pizza party was recently held in the school library where special education teacher Elizabeth Gardner congratulated the seventh grade and eighth grade students on their academic successes and stellar character.
A part of the FJHS Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports initiative, the event recognized students who were referral-free, passed all classes in the first 10 weeks and had an attendance rate of at least 95 percent.
The holiday movie, “Elf” played as students enjoyed each other’s company, engaged in conversation and enjoyed pizza and juice.
The students cheered for one another as the accomplishments were shared.
Elizabeth Stoddard, FJHS principal, said the VIP celebrations will now regularly occur at the school.
The criteria, however, will change each quarter to reflect the rigorous work load, increased effort and challenges required as the seventh graders and eighth graders begin to prepare to enter high school.
