Catching Character program recognizes high school students

Schuylerville High School students are being recognized for demonstrating excellent character. The school’s annual Catching Character program kicked off on Jan. 25 and will run through Feb. 12.

The goal of the program is to promote good character and recognize students who demonstrate responsibility, perseverance, citizenship, self-discipline, honesty, courage, fairness, respect, integrity, volunteerism, reliability, caring, cooperation, and tolerance.

Each week, teachers have the opportunity to nominate students who are caught demonstrating good character. Students can also nominate fellow classmates.

At the end of each week, five of the nominated students are selected as “Catching Character Students of the Week.” These students will each receive a Subway gift card and they will be featured on the wall outside Student Services. All students nominated will be included on a poster outside Student Services and each student will receive a free ice cream cone from Stewart’s Shops.

TOP FIVE STUDENTS OF THE WEEK FOR JAN.25-29:

Andrew Papura, Scott Salls, McKenzie Dufrain, Christopher Beck and Gabe Huff.
