A Great Honor!
To be completely honest, I do not frequently visit the Judge Memorial website, and on the rare occasion that I do, it's usually to check Powerschool. Today, however, a particular headline caught my eye; First Quarter Honor Roll 2009-10. Over 550 students were named to the Honor Roll (554, to be exact), which recognizes those who recieved at least a 3.0 GPA in their first quarter grades. 338 of those students achieved above a 3.5 GPA and were named to the HIgh Honor Roll. And an impressive 32 students earned a perfect 4.0 GPA for the first quarter and no seniors are on academic probation.
"Named to the High Honor Roll:
12th grade, the Class of 2010 – 117 high honor roll honorees
11th grade, the Class of 2011 – 77 high honor roll honorees
10th grade, the Class of 2012 – 84 high honor roll honorees
9th grade, the Class of 2013 – 60 high honor roll honorees
Named to the Honor Roll:
12th grade, the Class of 2010 – 40 honor roll honorees
11th grade, the Class of 2011 – 62 honor roll honorees
10th grade, the Class of 2012 – 54 honor roll honorees
9th grade, the Class of 2013 – 60 honor roll honorees"
Mr. Sloan's A.P. English class has been working on an assignment pertaining to George Orwell's 1984. The students have been told to find a single event that shows the existence of a larger social or political problem. The amount of Judge students on the Honor Roll is, in my view, quite an achievement. If anything, the statistics show that despite this world full of issues, in our little corner of the world, someone's doing something right.
