Orchard Park Pride Awards
Each year, approximately 10 percent of students in the senior class are selected to receive an Orchard Park Pride Award. This award is given to those who have exhibited excellence in one or more of the following areas: character, work ethic, and involvement and impact. Not everyone who exhibits these qualities will be chosen. Selection is made on the basis of information submitted on the OP Pride Form, as well as faculty votes. Each student who is chosen will be paired with a local business representative who will host the student and his/her parents at a dinner in the spring.
We are asking students to self-nominate by submitting the OP Pride Form (see file below) to Mrs. See or Mrs. Linder in House III by November 1st. The forms are available online and in the House offices. Students must download the form PRIOR to typing in responses and printing the form. Only students who have completed this form, checked the Orchard Park Pride box at the top, and submitted it by November 1st will be considered in the voting process.
This is not a time to be overly modest. If students have contributed to Orchard Park through activities in the classroom, in the community, or in school sports, clubs, or organizations, we encourage them to self-nominate by submitting the OP Pride Form. The process is similar to submitting a resume to apply for a job and we feel this will be a good learning experience.
