Sullivans ES students honored as part of National Student POWER Award Program

The Sullivans Elementary School

The Sullivans Elementary School is pleased to announce 12 students have been honored through the national Student POWER Award program. Sponsored by the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP), the Student POWER Award program seeks to highlight those students who, through their own efforts and with the support of others in the school community, make an exceptional difference in their own lives by achieving personal goals.

In general, a NASP Student POWER Award recipient demonstrates one or more of the following attributes and/or actions:

  • Progress toward individual goals
  • Optimism that he or she will succeed
  • Willing to solve problems
  • Eager to do his or her best
  • Reaches out to others

Through their hard work, Student POWER Award recipients improve their own well-being and demonstrate a desire to make an ongoing difference in their own lives and the lives of others.

Sullivans Elementary School psychologist, Ms. Stefanie Brown, initiated the Student POWER Award program at The Sullivans Elementary School as part of National School Psychology Week. The Student POWER Award program is part of NASP’s ongoing effort to help school psychologists promote children’s success in school and life, to help colleagues and parents redefine student success, and to highlight students’ exceptional efforts and individual achievements. It is grounded in the belief that emphasizing the positive, even in the face of adversity, is essential to achieving one’s best in school and life.

The following Sullivans ES students are Student POWER Award recipients:

Kindergarten, Leah
1st grade: Kenzley
2nd grade: Sloane, Christilyn, Abel, and James “Beckett”
3rd grade: Alexander and Jezrah
5th grade: Dexter, Jax, Noa, and Piyachat

Students were selected based on suggested guidelines from NASP that highlight making progress toward individual goals; considering possibilities in themselves, peers, or their school; maintaining an optimistic focus; trying their best; reaching out to others; and striving to meet academic and life challenges. In addition to receiving a certificate from NASP and a gift card to the PTO’s Dolphin Depot, the students have been added to the national list of Student POWER Award recipients on the NASP website.

NASP represents more than 26,000 school psychologists who work in schools and other education and health settings.
