Carey’s Eighth Graders Finish Strong

The H. Frank Carey High School Class of 2023 was posed a challenge at the beginning of the fourth marking period: By May 24, in English, math, social studies and science, students must have a 90% marking period average; a 95% homework average; all labs completed in Living Environment; a completed research paper in English; and no disciplinary instances. Students knew if they met the above criteria, they would be invited to a luncheon in their honor.

On June 11, 39 students were celebrated at a luncheon for beating the Finish Strong Challenge. Students got to mingle with each other, enjoy a lunch catered by Moe’s, listen to music and receive certificates of recognition. Principal Mr. Christopher Fiore addressed the group and congratulated them on a job well-done. The team teachers, Mrs. Carey-Hill, Mr. Hawrusik, Mr. Hirsch, Mrs. Holdcroft, Mrs. Jackson, Mr. Needham, Mrs. Schoen and Mr. Vitale, school counselor Ms. Bimonte and Assistant Principal Ms. Sharon Flynn were all at the special event. Ms. Flynn addressed the group and challenged them to be the same students who are at the top of their class in four years from now when they are seniors.

Congratulations to the 39 eighth grade students who beat the Finish Strong Challenge at Carey!
