Veritas High School

                                          2014 Honor Roll Students

Veritas High School students continually dedicate themselves to academic excellence! In the first semester of the year, 112 students (46% of the 244 students enrolled at Veritas) made the honor roll.  All of the committed students achieved their honor roll status by utilizing many of the resources provided by the school, including morning and afternoon tutoring sessions with their teachers.  Additionally, the students worked hard on their studies at home to achieve academic excellence.

                                      First Annual Honor Roll Breakfast

Veritas High School has always acknowledged its honor roll students, but this year was the first time the school held an honor recognition breakfast over two days.  On day one, the students with GPAs of 3.0 - 3.49 were honored, and on day two, students with GPAs of 3.5 - 4.0 were honored.

The room was fully decorated and a delicious breakfast was provided, along with a short presentation by the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee's Office of Charter Schools Interim Director, Paul Haubrich as well as Veritas Principal, Sherry Tolkan.

Parents of each honor roll student were personally invited to attend the recognition breakfast. Having several parents join to celebrate their children made it much more special for the hardworking students. Some very proud parents were treated by hearing how well their child has been doing as a student. With the rigorous curriculum that Veritas is know for, each of these students should feel a great sense of accomplishment for earning a place on the honor roll. 

During the breakfast, students and their parents received small gifts including a certificate of accomplishment, bumper stickers, and pens. It is very likely that this event will be an on-going one for years to come.
