Middle school, just by its very name, means it’s a pretty unique place. Not quite elementary school and not quite high school, middle school has it’s own unique set of challenges.
One big challenge is how quickly one’s time there passes. As a student, it may feel like you just left elementary school before you’re already starting high school.
Luckily for the students at Los Alamos Middle School though, there’s a program that’s been in place for years that serves to make the time students spend there more memorable.
It’s called “Student of the Term,” an awards breakfast that happens six times a year inside the school’s cafeteria. Students are nominated by their teachers for a particular accomplishment, and are awarded a certificate in the presence of their peers and parents.
According to Rex Kilburn, the school’s principal, it’s a way to give the students a nice pat on the back. Categories include accomplishments in any academic subject as well as self-improvement.
“Teachers are looking for drastic improvement, good grades, social responsibility, things of that nature,” he said.
