The Rupert Elementary School I'MPACT Team (which stands for I'm Pottstown Action Team) recognizes students’ outstanding efforts and good citizenship by making home visits to students. Teachers, along with Principal Mr. Matt Moyer, made personal home visits to students who were recognized as the first marking period I’MPACT award winners. Students received a certificate describing the characteristics of good citizenship and academic achievement. They are recognized for following the Rupert Rules – Be Respectful, Be Responsible, and Be a Problem Solver. Students received balloons, a certificate, and a Rupert I’MPACT polo shirt which they will proudly wear to school.
Award winners for the first marking period included:
- Aimee White
- Jade Garber
- Sean Rightnour
- Qeyanni Shawell
- Cole Bechtel
- Onjelay Nixon
Teachers taking part in the home visits included: Jenni Kohl, Amanda Langdon, Rebecca Wyatt, Shannon Wagner, Laurie Gresko, Jacinda Bartolucci, Britney Oxenford, Jamie Fazekas, and Allen Ferster.
Rupert Principal Matt Moyer explained about the visits, “It is important for us to recognize the outstanding achievements and good citizenship displayed by our students. In doing so, the award winners serve as role models for the rest of our students. It is exciting to see the look on the faces of the students and the parents as they receive their awards and recognize the value of their behaviors.”
