The Golden Eagle raffle is a way to reward students for their hard work and positive attitudes.  Golden is an acronym for: Genuine, Optimistic, Leadership, Driven, Engaged, and Neighborly.

Students who are caught displaying these characteristics were nominated by their teachers for the monthly Golden Eagle raffle.

Students who exhibit Genuine characteristics are helpful, respectful, and empathetic.  

Matthew Beam was nominated by Mrs. Cindy Isenberg for being displaying genuine qualities.  Beam delivers newspapers for Mrs. Beigle, Mrs. Deskovich, and Mrs. Isenberg everyday.  

Taylor Hunter was nominated by Mrs. Michelle Marasco for being Genuine as well. During class, Hunter got up and helped students struggling to learn how to use a graphing calculator.  It was a large class and Mrs. Marasco was busy helping other students, so Hunter took the initiative to help others.

Optimistic students are positive, patient, and supportive.  Mrs. Laura Harris nominated Asher Christine for always keeping a positive mood during rehearsals.  

According to Harris, Christine always makes sure that the group laughs at least once a day.  Harris also nominated Lindsey Walk for her positive personality and outlook on life.  “Lindsey is a joy to be around.  She keeps everyone smiling!”

Leaders are involved, set an example for others, and are brave.  

Ms. Angela Kline nominated Emily Baran for being a leader.  “Emily was the first to volunteer and present her project to the class.  Emily’s bravery was well exhibited and she set a wonderful example to the class and her peers,” said Kline.

Mrs. Harris also nominated Ava Focht for her leadership qualities. Ava helped to resolve a scheduling conflict that she was involved in with POPS and another group. “She was very mature and respectful with how she handled the situation,” said Harris.

Driven students are motivated, purposeful, and timely.

Chloe Makdad was nominated by Mr. Stephen Everhart for being displaying these characteristics. Everhart wrote, “Whether it’s winning National History Day, breaking school records for SAT performance, or pursuing research for a composition, no student is more driven to excel than Chloe.”

Engaged students participate, are attentive, and aware.

Susan Cannistraci has seen Seth Dell engaging in his school work noting that “Seth has developed a true growth mindset and is working hard both in and out of the classroom.  As a result he is completing more advanced work.”
