Students at Gotham Avenue are "Caught Being Good"

More than one hundred children were the recipients of the Gotham Avenue School’s "Caught Being Good" award. Students are nominated each month by administrators, faculty, other staff members or peers.

Children who receive this honor have been observed performing "random acts of kindness" and attempting to spread good will throughout the school.

"The project has been coordinated by Assistant Principal Dennis Cowan for the past decade and has had a measurable effect on positive student behavior and citizenship at Gotham Avenue," said Marshall Zucker, principal of the school.

The project rewards positive behaviors and reinforces brotherhood and cooperation among the Gotham Avenue School family.

"Our success can be seen in our superior student cooperation and scholarship. This project, combined with the Gotham Avenue Student Council, Good Citizen awards and our Gotham Avenue Family Rules Packet has yielded true results in building character," said Dennis Cowan, assistant to the principal.

Each month award winners are presented with certificates and bumper stickers for their proud parents to display.

Next time you see a car with a "Gotham Avenue School, Caught Being Good" bumper sticker on it, wave hello. It’s transporting one of Gotham’s finest students!
