Over 400 students at Chalmette High School were recently invited to participate in the school’s Breakfast of Champions – an initiative founded by the school’s Positive Behavior Intervention and Support Committee to recognize and reward outstanding students. Awards presented included accolades for Perfect Attendance, top scores on Advanced Placement exams, ACT, LEAP tests, or End of Course tests, and competitive cumulative grade point averages at or above a 3.5.
The event began with principal Wayne Warner congratulating the award recipients and thanking them for their contributions to CHS.
“You are here because you have done something extraordinary,” he told the students. “One day you will go out into our community and become a great success because you started off on the right path here at Chalmette High School.”
Melissa Moynan, co-chairperson of the committee, said it was all about giving students some love for the great things they have done to represent CHS.
“The Breakfast of Champions has the intent to just show our appreciation for the kids who work hard and do their part to help our school maintain its high-performance score year after year,” Moynan said. “We want them to know that they are appreciated.”
Moynan organized a team of teachers to present awards while the students enjoyed breakfast together and had the opportunity to walk away with an assortment of prizes as well. Raffle winners took home television sets, cameras, school supplies, bean bag chairs, and even coloring books.
Congratulations to all the students who were recognized at this event. The next Breakfast of Champions will take place in the spring and will reward students for their outstanding achievements happening this semester.
