Student Spotlight

Highlighting our Students’ Ongoing Successes

The students at O’Rourke Middle School are outstanding and exhibit excellence on a daily basis in the areas of academics, arts, sports and community. It is our privilege to highlight some of these students under the “Spotlight” and honor them for their hard work and contributions to school life.


Students of the Month

Beginning with November, each month students are recognized who demonstrate a positive attitude towards learning and respect towards others. Students who demonstrate consistent effort, appropriate conduct, responsible behavior, a cooperative attitude and respect for others are recognized. Honorees have their name and picture posted on the bulletin board outside the main office and receive a letter of congratulations and a certificate of recognition from Principal Colleen Wolff.
