BAHS is proud to announce the "Students of the Month" for December (including November as well, due to a couple of weeks of holiday vacations). The honorees are 9th Graders Kristina Walker and Tyler Bartlett, 10th Graders Kristyn Curtis and Malcolm Dunson-Todd, 11th Graders Alexis Racioppi and Dakota Coleman, as well as 12th Graders Kristina Hill and Aiden Ripley!

In an effort to help raise student aspirations at Belfast Area High School, the staff instituted a “Student of the Month” program, beginning in April of 2011.  This program will recognize a boy and a girl at each grade level based on teacher nominations, with subsequent voting by all staff.  The CORE Mission Statement of the school will provide the criteria for selection: a clear and effective communicator, a self-directed and lifelong learner, a creative and practical problem solver, a responsible and involved citizen, a collaborative and quality worker, and an integrative and informative thinker.  The students will receive a t-shirt, a certificate of recognition, and enjoy a pizza luncheon with the Principal.   Additionally, each student will have his or her picture prominently displayed in the school lobby and on the school’s web site.
