JERSEY SHORE - Jersey Shore Area Middle School recently announced its "ROCK" Star Award recipients for the month of November.
"ROCK" stands for Respect yourself, Organize and plan for success, Care for people and property, and Keep on learning. As part of the schoolwide positive behavior initiative, school officials identified students who displayed "Universal Expected Behaviors" within the previous month.
Each teacher completes a certificate explaining why students are nominated. Award winners are announced during daily building-wide announcements and they receive a letter of invitation to attend a special ROCK Star breakfast served by principal Laura Milarch and assistant principal Keith Veldhuis.
