EIGHT GOTHAM AVENUE STUDENTS EARN GOOD CITIZEN OF THE MONTH AWARDS

After demonstrating exceptional character-building skills such as respectfulness, trustworthiness, and helpfulness, eight Gotham Avenue students were selected to receive September’s “Good Citizen of the Month” awards.

The students—nominated by their teachers and chosen by a committee of staff and student council members—were presented with certificates, pins and bumper stickers from the school’s Assistant Principal Dennis Cowan.

Kindergartener Folake Famuyide from Mrs. Pourakis’ class was honored for his ability to follow all of the classroom rules, for always being ready to listen and learn, and for being caring and helpful to his classmates and teacher.

First-grader Tatiana Louis from Mrs. Agosto’s class was acknowledged for always being attentive and giving her best, for sitting up straight without being reminded, and for being respectful and a hard worker.

Awarded for always trying his hardest, always participating in class and being a good friend to everyone was Imani Fuller from Ms. Hauisward’s second-grade class.

Kudos went to Raquel Persaud, a third-grader from Ms. Liebmann’s class, for being a pleasant, conscientious student, who follows the rules and gets along with others.

Gideon Bernal, grade four, from Mrs. Talbot’s class, was chosen for being an excellent citizen who is polite and courteous to students and adults, alike.

Natesh Mahdeo from Mr. Huber’s fifth-grade class, won for being well behaved, always ready to work and his willingness to help.

Considered an excellent role model for her peers, sixth-grader Mel Palaca from Mrs. Stadtman’s class received the award for her willingness to help in the classroom and for her noteworthy involvement with the safety patrol.

Khalid Hamilton from Mrs. Jaworski’s class was also honored for being helpful, polite and kind to everyone.

Good citizenship is encouraged at Gotham Avenue School in various ways including having an active student council, making daily character education announcements and fundraising for charities such as The Smile Train, Save the Children Foundation and the Caroline Mungai Foundation.

The mission of the Elmont Union Free School District is to “reach and teach for excellence,” which means continually improving instruction and increasing student achievement. Dedication to this goal is what has earned Elmont New York State recognition for its “High Performing/Gap Closing Schools,” and as a state “model for school success.” In partnership with the community, the district holds its students to the highest standards while maintaining one of the lowest per-pupil expenditures in Nassau County.
