• Celebrating Our Student Community


    The students of Scotch Plains - Fanwood Schools are remarkable!  While they might not be perfect all the time, they are capable of amazing acts of generosity and kindness.  They also have astonishing talents that enable them to rise to many challenges and achieve wonderful heights.

    This section of our site celebrates our students as the incredible human beings that they are.  Yes, we have test scores and honor rolls which recognize some of their academic achievements.  What we recognize here are their hearts and spirits not just inside our schools but in the "real" world.

    See a student doing a kindness for another person?  We want to know.

    Did your student complete a triathalon?  Oh, we want to know that too.

    Hear about a student organizing a fundraiser to help others?  Yes, of course that. 

    Each school will have a separate section where they can celebrate their in-house "superheroes."  Each month, we'll highlight some of those students on our district level page so anyone and everyone will know their good acts.

    How will we learn about these achievements?  We need you to tell us.  In each school, there's some form of "Caught you doing something good" or ways to nominate someone for their works.  However, since we want to expand the scope of our warm spotlight, we are creating an online form which will allow people outside our schools to submit their nominations. 

    What's our criteria?  Something that made you say "way to go!" or "thank you!"  Your neighbor shoveled your sidewalk just to be neighborly?  You were at a sporting match where students showed the true meaning of sportsmanship? A student helped you while you were trying to wrangle your groceries and your kids into your car?  Please share it with us!  Give us the details and some contact and verification information so we celebrate the terrific students of Scotch Plains - Fanwood Schools.
