submitted by Manchester Middle School
Manchester Middle School honored over 200 students at their Honors Night Program on Monday, June 12. Students were honored in multiple categories including High Honors, Honors, Exceptional Attendance and for being selected as a Student of the Month during the year. Recognition for High Honors highlights those students that have received all A’s for three out of four marking periods and Honors recognizes those students that received all A’s and B’s in three out of four marking periods. Students were also recognized for their involvement with the Middle School Student Council, Builders Club, and for representing Manchester Middle School at the SEMMLA Spelling Bee and Quiz Bowl activities.
As an eighth grader, students are eligible to be recognized for earning all As for three out of the four quarters for all four years at Manchester Middle School. Students achieving this milestone are awarded a four-year trophy. Earning a four-year trophy at this year’s Honors Night were eighth grade students Christina Adams, Katelyn Blumenauer, John Keast, Carli Kerns, Ryan Mann, Jacob Messman, Jessica Phillips, Kayla Ridenour, Madison Vogel, Phoenix Waters, Victoria Woods, and Mykaela Zink.
Manchester Middle School English Language Arts teacher, Irene Barnard, was recognized as the Manchester Middle School Teacher of the Year. The current eighth grade class were asked to vote on the teacher that had the greatest impact on them during their years at Manchester Middle School. The current eighth grade students had Mrs. Barnard in both 5th and 8th grade.
The final award of the night was the MEMSPA (Michigan Elementary and Middle School Principals Association) Principal Award. Each year, Michigan middle school principals recognize eighth grade students that go above and beyond academically, in addition to being active in organizations within their school and community. They are role models to the other students within their middle school. This year’s Manchester Middle School recipients were Jacob Mann and Phoenix Waters.
