OLWEUS WEBER STARS!Many students and staff members at Weber Middle School go through their day being respectful and caring, helping those with crutches, holding doors for others, helping a student who has dropped their books, or saying a gracious, “thank you” to others.
Once a quarter, those recognized for these little random acts of kindness by students and staff are awarded an Olweus Weber STAR.
Olweus Weber STARs are nominated by Weber staff and students once a quarter. An Olweus Weber STAR is a student or staff member that displays one or more of the following qualities: respect, responsibility, good character, commitment to community, academic improvement, effort, exemplary behavior, and/or sportsmanship.
Every Weber student or staff member has a chance to be an Olweus Weber STAR! A student or staff member can nominate anyone they feel deserves the privilege of becoming a STAR. When nomination time arrives, students can access a nomination form in the counseling office (room 213) and staff members can send an email to Ms. Shirian (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Dr. Amigon (email@example.com) and let us know that there is someone in the building who is deserving of this honor.
After staff consideration, all nominees are presented with a Weber STAR Blue Ribbon. Students and staff that receive the honor of being named an Olweus Weber STAR are notified during a special morning announcement whereby a Blue Ribbon of recognition is awarded during homebase. A congratulatory letter is also mailed to the Olweus Weber STAR student's family, and all STAR names are displayed prominently outside of the Counseling Office for the school year.
