The Rosarian Academy hosted an awards ceremony on the last day of school to recognize those middle school students who had exceptional academic achievements throughout the school year.
Devyn Dyett, a current sixth grader, was honored as the recipient of the Chatham Hall Science Camp Scholarship, given by Chatham Hall, an all-girls boarding and day school located in Chatham, Va. The $500 scholarship to attend Chatham Hall’s Summer Investigators Science Camp is presented to a rising seventh-grade girl who is in good academic standing, exhibits a love and understanding of science, and enjoys asking questions about the world around her.
Seventh-grade students Meredith Anderson, Charlotte Breckenridge and Thomas Raymond achieved Highest Academic Honors for earning all A grades in both the third and fourth quarters, all A grades on final exams, and E (exemplary) in all co-curricular subjects.
Outstanding Achievement in All Subject Areas was presented to Maggie Acosta (fifth grade), Devyn Dyett (sixth grade) and Meredith Anderson (seventh grade) for having the highest academic average for all four quarters.
Five seventh-grade students — Meredith Anderson, Milo Keogh, Thomas Raymond, Jack Throop and Grayson Zwickel — were previously recognized as Duke University Talent Identification Program (TIP) Scholars and qualified for state recognition and/or a summer studies program. These students earned a qualifying score on the SAT or on the English, math, reading, science and/or composite sections of the ACT, placing them in the top 30 percent nationally.
Accelerated Reader awards were given to students in fifth through seventh grades who read more than one million words since the start of the school year. They were: +1,000,000 words — Madison Fabbri (fifth grade), Joseph Coates (fifth grade), Marlowe Flom (sixth grade) and Seema Thakkar (seventh grade); and +5,000,000 words — Blair Haft (fifth grade).
