Distinguished Scholars ProgramWelcome 6th graders, returning 7th and 8th graders!The Distinguished Scholars Program is an enrichment program created specifically for our middle school students. All self-motivated students with a love for learning are invited to enroll during their 6th grade year. These individuals will challenge themselves by designing and developing their own unique projects while working with mentors to meet their objective.Requirements:
- Complete 5 projects during the 3 year middle school timeframe (Each project will be formally presented using a slide show upon completion).
- Mentor a younger Distinguished Scholar during 8th grade year.
- Provide a Distinguished Scholar presentation board and display area during the 4th marking period of the 8th grade year at the DSP Showcase Event and Awards Ceremony. This presentation will highlight the student's accomplishments throughout the course of the program. Students, teachers, parents, Board of Education members, and administrators are all invited to attend. Following the showcase, students will be awarded their gold cords of distinction, which they will wear at the graduation ceremony in June.
- Ofcourse, maintain passing grades for all your academic courses.
for each project, students will complete a proposal and meet with Mrs. Culmone to design their own individualized action plan for their assignment.
Although students are expected to work on projects outside of school hours, study halls may be used to work on Distinguished Scholar projects.
The DSP Classroom and presentation area (room 50) is designated during period 7 for any DSP students to work on their projects.
In addition, students may work with Mrs. Culmone before or after school with parent permission.
Upon completing ALL of the above requirements, students will graduate 8th grade as Disinguished Scholars.
