South Orangetown Central School District

Congratulations to eighth-grader Ailish M., South Orangetown Middle School’s New York Jets Upstander of the Week! Here’s what Ailish’s teachers wrote in their nomination: “She is very polite in the hallways, toward classmates and in the classroom. She looks to help other students when they are in need. She is a very good role model who will continue to do great things this year.”

In addition to school-wide recognition over the public announcement system, Ailish received a Jets Tackle Bullying t-shirt, and three tickets and a parking pass for the December 15 Jets vs. Texans game. “If your friends know that you’re an Upstander, it’ll have a domino effect,” said Ailish. “Other people will want to be Upstanders, too.”
