Plainville High School Holds First Annual Super Senior Banquet

Schools have many rules and regulations which govern acceptable student behavior. There are many opportunities during high school in which students must make choices, either in accordance with behavioral expectations, or in violation of those expectations. Last spring, Plainville High School, under the new leadership of Principal Steve LePage, took an opportunity to honor the students who consistently made the right choices during high school, celebrating leadership through character.

On May 17, 2011, Plainville High School hosted the first Super Senior award night at the Aqua Turf Club in Plantsville, Connecticut.This event was held to recognize and acknowledge 104 seniors who successfully completed four years of high school with no disciplinary infractions (school detentions or suspensions). The students in attendance at the banquet represented a wide range of interests, talents and abilities; however, one trait they all shared was positive character. Inscribed on the plaque which each student received that evening were the words, Leadership Through Character.

This event would not have been possible without the support of the Elizabeth Norton Trust, which awarded a $1,000 grant toward the costs associated with hosting the event. The support and generosity of the members from this exceptional Plainville charitable organization is sincerely appreciated. Art Rich Photography also supported the Super Senior program, donating a framed group photograph of the Super Seniors for display at the high school. In addition, a framed copy of the photograph along with a Super Senior award plaque, was presented to each student in front of family, friends, administrators and members of the Board of Education.

"Students need to be acknowledged for positive character. In fact, character is one of the most important ingredients in the happy and successful life we reference in our school vision. If students don't learn how to navigate the rules which are intended to guide them during high school, they often meet with difficulty in post-graduate pursuits. We were very excited to be able to celebrate these outstanding students," said Plainville High School Principal, Steve LePage.
