The first month of school, especially for new families, is a month of great anticipation and expectation. The desire for fun and success is high. "What will happen if I am successful at Serra?" is a question often asked. One of the great events that takes place after the first month of school provides answers, at least in part, to this question.
At the end of the first month of school, Serra High School puts on the Spring Semester Honor Roll Assembly, honoring those students who worked their hardest during the previous Spring Semester to earn high marks in the classroom. New Freshmen and Transfer students get to see what may be in store for them at Serra High School, while those deserving of the honors are able to, at least for one brief moment, bask in the afterglow of their great achievements.
For the Spring Semester of 2018, there were 17 Sophomores, 9 Juniors, and 20 Seniors on the Honor Roll, consisting of students who earned a GPA between 3.5 and 3.99. On the Principal's Honor Roll, which holds within it students having a 4.0 GPA or higher, there were 11 Sophomores, 12 Juniors and 37 Seniors. These students have worked very hard and are deserving of great recognition.
Also receiving and deserving great recognition were students who earned the highest GPA's for the 2017-2018 school year. Sophomore Isabella Reeves, Junior Kimmia Saunders-Butler, and Senior Joelle Walley earned the highest GPA's in their respective classes. Freshman Angel Williams was recognized for having earned the highest HSPT score.
Additionally, students who demonstrated outstanding citizenship were recognized. Recipients of this honor were Sophomores Sean Gowers and Sophia Aldana, Juniors Lauryn Carter and Justin Pinkney, and Seniors Kiana Nardone and Marvin Evans. To all of our Cavaliers, thank you for reminding all that Serra is a community that has a wide variety of students with incredibly diverse talents and that Serra is a truly powerful Catholic academic institution. Congratulations to all who were recognized on this great day.
