ANNUAL CAPSS AWARDS
CAPSS Superintendents’ Award
November 2nd, 2016
Each fall the Connecticut Association of Public Schools Superintendents (CAPSS) sponsors a student award for schools throughout the state. Scotland School District is a school district within the University Region Superintendents Association (URSA), a sub group of CAPSS.
The Superintendent/Student award program has been going strong since its inception in 1986. The purpose of the program is to recognize students in the exit grade of schools in the URSA area who exhibit academic success, school leadership, and service to others. Students are selected by the previous year’s teacher, the present school year teacher, and the school principal.
On November 2nd, 2016, a ceremony was held at the RHAM High School auditorium in Hebron to honor these students. Proud families and friends of these students were in attendance. Each student received a CAPSS Certificate of Excellence as their school system’s Superintendent of Schools read a brief biography containing the students’ academic successes, examples of school leadership, and acts of kindness and caring by these students. Refreshments followed the formal program.
It was truly a night of celebration and true examples of the core values that are met on a daily basis by many of our exemplary public school students in Eastern Connecticut.
This year, Scotland Elementary School named two sixth grade students, Angela Bojarski and Evan Brown as our 2016-2017 award winners.
