OESJ Elementary/Middle School Honor Roll Breakfast

POSTED 3/5/2014
School recognizes honor roll, high honor roll students
The OESJ Elementary School/Middle School recognized 88 students who earned placement on the schools' second quarter High Honor or Honor Roll at a special breakfast ceremony Friday, Feb. 28. 

According to Principal Jeanine Kawryga 38 percent of the elementary fourth and fifth grade student body and 45 percent of the middle school student body during second quarter made grades high enough to earn themselves High Honor or Honor Roll recognition. 

Students earning High Honor Roll recognition must achieve an 89.5 percent or higher average. Honor Roll students must earn an average of an average between 84.5 and 89.4 percent.

The guest speaker at Friday's breakfast was 2006 Oppenheim-Ephratah graduate Angeline Conte. 

Conte is a graduate of the State University of New York at Cortland and now works as a guidance counselor in the Greater Johnstown School District. 

Conte extolled the opportunities available to OESJ students. 

"Many people I went to college with were either: a jock, a nerd, or a band geek when they were in middle school or high school, and I was able to be all of the above because of the unique place you and I have grown up," Conte said. 

The guidance counselor encouraged students to take advantage of all the opportunities available to them.

"You are all able to have a very well rounded middle school and high school experience. You are all able to participate in every single school activity. It's just a matter of whether you want to participate in any of it," she said.
