Students are given the chance each quarter to participate in the S.T.A.T.E (Students Taking Action Toward Excellence) program. Students who demonstrate good behavior, passing grades, and who are in good social standing (as noted below) will qualify to attend a quarterly celebration of their success.

S.T.A.T.E Quarterly Eligibility Criteria

  • No grades of D’s or F’s for the quarter.

  • No discipline points for the quarter.

  • Students should be “in good standing”. Integrity issues in proximity to a S.T.A.T.E activity such as cheating, bullying, fighting, or other concerning behavior that warrants conversations with students or parents can disqualify a student from being recognized or participating.

  • No more than 2 minors referrals during the quarter for which discipline points were not assigned.

  • No student who receives a discipline referral on the day of a S.T.A.T.E activity or dance will be allowed to participate in the activity.

Night of the Stars & Worlds of Fun Trip
The Night of the Stars is a special award dinner in mid-May for both 7th and 8th-grade students who qualify. The dinner is a S.T.A.T.E. activity for those students who demonstrate behavior and academic progress most congruent with middle school expectations. There is no charge for the dinner.

Night of the Stars Eligibility Criteria

  • 0 minimum GPA for each quarter.

  • No discipline points for the year.

  • 3 tardies or fewer for each quarter.

  • Met the quarterly S.T.A.T.E. eligibility criteria each quarter.

  • In good standing with the team and administration.

The Worlds of Fun trip is the 4th quarter S.T.A.T.E. activity for both 7th and 8th-grade students. The trip typically occurs on Thursday (7th grade) and Friday (8th grade) during the 3rd week of May.
