South Orangetown Central School District

Seventh-grader Ciara H. is South Orangetown Middle School’s New York Jets Upstander of the Week! Ciara takes initiative to always be helpful to her teachers and peers and she motivates others to do the same. Her teachers note that Ciara’s positive attitude and upstanding character is recognized and appreciated.

Ciara says that the Upstander program encourages students to be the best they can be by promoting good behavior and positivity throughout the school. She thinks it’s important that students treat each other equally and with “greater understanding of everyone’s different situations.”

In addition to school-wide recognition over the public announcement system, Ciara received a Jets Tackle Bullying t-shirt and three tickets and a parking pass for the November 11 Jets vs. Bills game. Congratulations, Ciara!
