Student & Staff Recognition

Each month are recognizing students and staff who exemplify the skills and competencies that we value in our SBRHS Vision of the Graduate. This month's skill is ACADEMICS. Who do you know in our SBRHS community that strives for excellence in academics? This does not mean that they are necessarily top of their class or getting straight A’s. This means that this person strives every day to try their best in class in all they do. This includes reading, writing, communicating, problem solving and critical thinking.

For staff members, who encourages their students to strive for excellence in their class each and every day? If someone who you thought was resilient also works hard in their classes at SBRHS, include that person's name in this new list. If someone new comes to mind, we want to hear from you too. If you have not yet participated, we hope you will think about filling out the Google Form this month. Last month, we recognized students and staff members for their resiliency. Randomly selected, we want to honor one of the 98 students and 60 staff members that were recognized for resiliency. They are:

Student: Emily Shea

Staff Member: Mr. Poulin
