- Students who have gone above and beyond in the classroom effort or achievement during the previous trimester.
- Students who exhibit excellent social emotional competencies throughout the school environment.
- Students who have participated and excelled in co-curricular and athletic programs and whom have exhibited qualities of hard work, perseverance, good sportsmanship, kindness, and willingness to help others.
