Striking Toward Excellence
Given every mid-trimester, students and teachers take the opportunity to recognize students who exemplify the learner qualities of self-directed learner, collaborative worker, respectful citizen and quality producer.
Answer the Call
An eighth-grade student or multiple students, selected by the teachers, who over the course of their time at London best represent the Learner Qualities and service to others.
Honors Recognition and Reception
During the spring, an evening is planned to recognize student achievement. Students who have earned this recognition will have their names published in the London FLASH newsletter. Please contact the middle school office if you think that an error has been made in calculating your child’s honor roll status. Students who have earned the following awards will receive invitations by mail to attend the reception.
Silver Roll – Student was on the Silver Roll during the first two trimesters.
Purple/Silver Roll – Student was on Purple Roll for one trimester and Silver for the other trimester.
Purple Roll – Student was on the Purple Roll during the first two trimesters.
Eighth Grade Honors – Purple or Silver Roll seven out of eight trimesters
Eighth High Honors/Presidential Award – Student was on Purple Roll for seven out of eight trimesters.
Eighth Grade Promotion
At the end of the academic year, eighth-grade students who qualify are promoted to high school. Eighth-grade promotion exercises are provided by the School Board and Administration to formalize the completion of this phase of a student’s education. Plans for the promotion exercises are announced in the spring, and parents of eighth-grade students are notified of all activities several weeks before the end of the school year.
Occasionally, a student may exhibit unacceptable conduct (as defined in the District 21 Discipline Policy), despite the combined efforts of school personnel, parents and the student to remediate such misconduct. In such cases, students may forfeit the privilege of participating in promotional exercises or year-end eighth-grade activities. The decision for revocation of this privilege will be made by the building principal.
