Award Descriptions

The BEAR Awards is a very special award because, unlike the Renaissance or Dean’s Awards, it is solely based on teacher nomination and unlike those awards; it is not based on students’ grades, but on Behavior, Effort, Attitude, or Respect. Students have to demonstrate to their teacher that they have been outstanding in one of those areas or have shown such a marked improvement in an area that their teacher thought them to be worthy of being nominated. This award recognizes a students’ character – their willingness to make a change for the better; to bring a failing grade up to a C; to consistently turn in their homework; to show respect for his or her teacher and peers; or to make a valiant attempt to complete assigned tasks. Therefore, there are several ways students could be recognized as BEARs. Students who attain more than one BEAR nomination become a Most Valuable Bear (MVB) and are recognized at the end of the year in a special ceremony.

The purpose of the Dean’s List is to encourage student achievement and recognize successful freshmen who have contributed to our school in a positive way. To be eligible, students must meet the following criteria:

  • Average of 85 or above in academic courses
  • Average of 85 or above in their career and technical program
  • No grade lower than 75
  • ” 3 ” or better in conduct and effort

No disciplinary action resulting in suspension. If you have any questions regarding this program, please contact the Dean of Freshmen.

The National Honor Society (NHS) is the nation’s premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Character. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since their beginning in 1921. Today, it is estimated that more than one million students participate in activates of the NHS. NHS chapters are found in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, many U.S. Territories, and Canada. Chapter membership not only recognized students for their accomplishments, but challenges them to develop further through active involvement in school activates and community service. Four main purposes have guided chapters of NHS from the beginning- ” To create enthusiasm for scholarships, to simulate a desire to render service, to promote leadership, and to develop character in the student in secondary school” (From the NHS constitution) Theses purposes also translate into the criteria used for membership selection in each local chapter.

Poor attendance is the leading cause of failing grades. Students are expected to be present – and on time – everyday that school is in session. School starts at 7:30 AM sharp. GNB Voc-Tech and the state expect a 95% student attendance rate. Students with more than three (3) unexcused absences in a single quarter will receive a grade of “Incomplete” until they make up that time with their assigned mentor. Students that are absent (unexcused) from school are not allowed to participate in athletics or school activities on the day of their absence. Parents or guardians are required by law to send their children to school. We follow state laws on attendance. The General Laws of Massachusetts include the following:

M.G.L. Chapter 76, Section 4:
Whoever induces or attempts to induce a minor to absent himself unlawfully from school, or unlawfully employs him or harbors a minor who, while school is in session, is absent unlawfully from school, shall be punished by a fine of not more than $200. M.G.L. Chapter 76, Section 1A: (in part) The parents and guardians of each pupil shall, annually, at the commencement of each school year be sent a notice instructing them to call a designated telephone number at a designated time to inform the school of the absence of a pupil and the reason therefore. Said notice shall also require such parent or guardian to furnish the school with a home, work or other emergency telephone number where they can be contacted during the school day. If a pupil is absent and the school has not been notified by the designated time, the school shall call the telephone number or numbers furnished to inquire about said absence. M.G.L. Chapter 76, Section 2 Duties of Parents; Penalty: (in part) Every person in control of a child described in section one shall cause him to attend school as therein required, and, if he fails so to do for seven day sessions or fourteen half day sessions within any period of six months, he shall, on complaint by a supervisor of attendance, be punished by a fine of not more than twenty dollars.
