St. Mary’s Assumption was notified this week that two of our 8th grade students received recognition as Holy Redeemer Scholars. This is based on their performance on the Placement Test which was administered in December. Michael Conlon and Lauren Senese earned this award for placing in the top ten percent of test takers. Students included in this grouping are in the Holy Redeemer School System, as well as public and private school students. There were over 250 8th grade students that took the placement test.
Pictured, left to right, are Lauren Senese, Michael Conlon, Mrs. Mary Jane Kozick, principal and Mrs. Ann Marie Walsh, eighth grade teacher.
