RACINE — It may not have been the traditional end to the 2019-20 school year, with many celebrations and events canceled, but that is not stopping Southern Local from honoring its students.
Southern Local recently announced students recognized for their academic achievements for the 2019-20 school year.
“Due to COVID-19 we were unable to properly celebrate their success with our annual academic banquet. We feel it is important that their academic efforts be acknowledged,”stated the district in announcing the honorees.
“Student selection shall be based on accumulative academic achievement without any rounding up of grade point average.
To be honored at the banquet, a student must have the following criteria:
1. (Grades 4- 12) Be in the top 15% of their class. This number will be determined by the total number of students in the class by the end of the third grading period. (Grades 9 -12 will use weighted accumulative GPA and will include any and all “specials” that receive a letter grade (A, B, C, D, or F).
2. This selection is based on the student’s accumulative weighted GPA at the end of the first semester and must be on A/B honor roll during third nine weeks.”
All honorees will still receive the medal they would have been bestowed at the academic banquet. (* notes that this child would have also been honored at the county academic banquet)
