West Essex Middle School has announced its students of the month.
Every month, West Essex Middle School selects two students from each grade to be recognized and honored as the students of the month.
For January, the school selected as its students of the month seventh-graders Cameron Barrett and Audrey Smith, and eighth-graders Patrick Coyle and Mary Matos.
To be selected for the award, the middle school staff has decided to base candidates and selections on a review of the “whole” student not just the student with the best grades. Character traits such as honesty, perseverance, responsibility, integrity and leadership as well as a student’s academic qualities are included in selecting students.
Honored students will have their pictures displayed in the middle school display case outside of the main office and on the middle school website.
