We are very excited to recognize our Excellence Award winners at graduation. This special recognition is what we believe as a district every one of our students should be striving for. In 2012, administrators, teachers, and most importantly students met to establish key categories that define excellence at Leyden. We believe that if a student achieves all seven of these qualifications they deserve special recognition and mention at the end of their high school careers. We also believe that every student entering Leyden has the opportunity to earn the Excellence Award.
Here are the 7 categories that will be used when determining recipients.
Any questions? Please see Dr. Manola (East Leyden Principal), Mrs. Makishima (West Leyden Principal), Mrs. Gorskowski (East Leyden Student Activities) or Dr. Ruffolo (West Leyden Student Activities).
