PRMS Honors â€˜Most Dependable Studentsâ€™
Porter Ridge Middle School (PRMS) honored its most dependable students recently.
The 27 students, who were nominated by their teachers for consistently displaying the character trait of dependability, were honored on Friday, February 5, 2010, with a pancake breakfast, a certificate of recognition and a coupon for a free kidâ€™s meal from Donatoâ€™s Pizza.
Most of their parents were also present to help celebrate this special occasion.
â€œI think dependability ties into their success,â€ said Mary Nash, the 7th grade counselor. â€œIt demonstrates that these students will keep their word, be on time and be someone that other students and teachers can count on.â€
Each month, PRMS identifies students that exhibit a characteristic in their Pirate Pride program. As one of the facets of their school wide anti-bullying program, PRMS is looking for Pirates who display pride in themselves and their fellow classmates. Students have already been recognized for Friendliness, Responsibility, Organization, Diligence and Generosity. The school will recognize students in February through April for Respectfulness, Positiveness and Trustworthiness.
After the breakfast, students were presented their certificates and then given an opportunity to be interviewed on the PRMS broadcast , WPRMS, about their thoughts on dependability. Their comments were replayed during the day in the schoolâ€™s lobby.
â€œWe are extremely proud to have the pleasure of recognizing the students and their parents for this accomplishment,â€ said 8th grade counselor, Margo Sellers.
Laura Conway, the 6th grade counselor, thanked Donatoâ€™s Pizza for its support of the Pirate Pride program at PRMS.
