Happy Passover

Passover is a Jewish holiday that honors the freedom and exodus of the Israelites (Jewish slaves) from Egypt during the reign of the Pharaoh Ramses II. Before the ancient Jews fled Egypt, their firstborn children were "passed over" and spared from death, thus dubbing the holiday "Passover".

Happy Easter

Easter is the holiest day of the year for Christians. It celebrates their belief in the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Jesus was the founder of the religion of Christianity. Easter is always observed on a Sunday in the spring, but its date varies.

Ramadan Ends with Eid Al-Fiter: Eid Mubarak

Ramadan is observed by Muslims every year to acknowledge Allah's revelation of the Quran to the Prophet Muhammad.

The ending of this month of fasting and spiritual reflection is marked with the celebration Eid al-Fitr.

To wish a friend well, the most popular phrase used is "Eid Mubarak", which simply translates as "blessed feast or festival"

REQUIREMENTS FOR ARISTA

The mission of the Paulo Arista Society is to make the qualities of scholarship, citizenship, and service function as a beacon of excellence for all members of the school community. To communicate this mission, Paulo has made the requirements for inclusion in Arista (8th grade), Junior Arista (7th grade) and Honor Society (6th grade) as follows:


1. Scholarship – Academic average of at least 91.00% in each marking period with no grade, in any subject, below 80 or “S”. Please note that a course grade of 79 or lower precludes a student from Arista.

2. Citizenship – No citizenship grade below “S” (Satisfactory) in any marking period.

3. Service – The attainment of at least 25 service credits per school year.

4. Attendance/Punctuality – Students absent more than 10 days per school year are precluded. Also, students who are picked up early from school five or more times in a given semester are also precluded from this recognition.

Please see the Student Handbook for a more in-depth explanation of criteria for the Paulo Arista Society.

Service Credits

Service credit is a form of school-based volunteer work where students are acknowledged for their meaningful contributions. In-school service can be in the form of classroom monitoring, being a member of a school team, or even just participating in a spirit event.

Students are encouraged to participate in as many activities as possible. School service, partnered with a dedication to their academics, builds a strong foundation for the well-rounded student. Students are afforded opportunities throughout the year to earn these credits. Participation in out-of-school charitable events or organizations does not count for service credits. Participation in said events are recognized separately. Letters of participation in community-based service can be sent in to Mr. Herrmann, who will catalog their efforts and count them toward the Philanthropy Award (given to deserving graduates).

Preliminary Registration for Incoming 6th Grade

If you have a future 6th grader zoned for our school, please complete the preliminary registration online. Middle School results will go out in April.
