A Celebration of Students at the January Board of Education meeting!

A Celebration of Students at the January Board of Education meeting!

Each month, the Board of Education and School District Administration recognize and celebrate the achievements of students from each of the District's schools!  The January recognitions included:

Girl Scouts Angelina Taylor, Mia Caruso, Molly Pease and Isabel Finn Dimeo were celebrated for earning their Silver Award, along with 55 other girls from Ocean and Monmouth County. Only 10% of girls that seek this award actually meet all of the requirements!


From the elementary level we celebrated Tevon Gayle from Ridgeway Elementary who is a Star Student! Tevon moved to the United States from Jamaica and is working so hard to adapt to school in America. He is growing and excelling at Ridgeway Elementary both socially and academically. We celebrated Joseph Murray who is a part of the fifth grade Gifted and Talented Program at MTES. Joseph is recognized for his hard work on his Passion Project about American History and Geography as well as for developing a Jeopardy game around the topics for his classmates. We also celebrated Blake Cortez of Whiting Elementary. The culmination of Blake’s hard work and ingenuity on his Passion Project resulted in the creation of a robot that speaks, responds and identifies color on your command through code.


From the Regional Day School we celebrated Daniel Sarana for always showing kindness to his classmates and for being very respectful towards staff.


From Manchester Township Middle School we celebrated Collin Nolan. Collin is a part of the Junior Volunteer program at All Fur One Pet Rescue. Once a month, he donates his time to help care for the resident cats who are up for adoption as well as learn about volunteering, fostering, and animal welfare. Collin is also developing an app that would help people decide which cat to adopt. 


We also celebrated Manchester Middle School Athletes of the Month Makayla Lawson and Cole Wilson. Cole is on the wrestling team and Makayla is on the cheerleading team. Cole and Makayla work just as hard in the classroom as they do in the athletic arena and serve as an excellent example to our younger students/athletes.


From Manchester Township High School we celebrated Olivia Fiedler, (Grade 11) Juliana Cackowski (Grade 11), & Riley Reardon (Grade 12).  When recent news broke of police rescuing 180 animals from an unfit home in Brick, these three students jumped to action and created the “Pet Rescue Mission Relief Drive” service project to benefit local animal shelters who were inundated with this huge influx of new animals, including Northern Ocean County Animal Shelter.  Students collected two large flat beds and several trunks full of donations. In addition to the usual donations of blankets, food, and supplies, the students also collected crates, pet carriers and unique supplies like heating pads and kitten formula. 


We also celebrated Manchester Township High School’s Athletes of the Month Andrew Perez and Devyn Quigley. Andrew is the MTHS Wrestling Captain currently holding a 15-1 on the season and a GPA of 99.2.  Andrew is a member of the Jazz Band and the Percussion Leader for the Concert Band.  Furthermore, he is the Assistant Editor of the student newspaper The Talon. Andrew will be continuing his academic & wrestling career at Ursinus University, majoring in Health & Exercise Physiology.  Devyn is a member of the National Honor Society and the MTHS Girls Basketball team averaging 40 ppg, 12 rpg, and 5 spg. She recently joined the 1,000-point club and broke the WOBM Christmas Classic Single Game scoring record with 47 pts. vs. Pt. Boro. She has also broken the Tournament Scoring record with 128 points in 3 games.

Congratulations to all!
