South Orangetown Central School District

Congratulations to eighth-grader Sofia C., nominated as New York Jets Upstander of The Week by the South Orangetown Middle School Music Department! Here’s what Sofia’s teachers had to say: “Sofia is a leader within the classroom and is always working to create a productive learning environment for the people around her. Both in and out of the classroom, Sofia does not hesitate to assist her peers. In all of her actions, she demonstrates the four C’s (creativity, collaboration, communication and critical thinking).”

For Sofia, Upstanders serve as role models for other students. “I try to be a good person and help others when they need it,” she says.

In addition to school-wide recognition over the public announcement system, Sofia received a Jets Tackle Bullying t-shirt, and three tickets and a parking pass for the December 15 Jets vs. Texans game.
