The student recognition program at Roxbury High School is designed to identify model students. Recognizing student achievement helps to create a more positive school climate and culture. Also, it reinforces the ideals of hard work, determination, perseverance, and persistence. Each month a student will be recognized as “Student of the Month” in one of 11 subject areas.
On occasion, one student may be recognized for outstanding citizenship. The recognized student exemplifies a strong commitment to going above and beyond in helping others.
Students will be nominated by teachers based on the following criteria:
- Good grades or improvement in grades
- Respect to peers, faculty, and staff
- Overcoming challenges
- Setting a good example for peers
Teachers can base their nominations on other attributes not listed. Final selections of students will be done by the assistant principal and a committee of teachers. Each month, from October through May, these students will have their photos posted on the TV in the main lobby and on a bulletin board in E hall designated for "Student of the Month". The 11 students will also be acknowledged on our RHS website. All students recognized will be presented with a navy blue RHS drawstring gym bag, a coupon for a free sub sandwich at Jersey Mike's, and a coupon for ice cream at Cliff's Homemade Ice Cream.
