ELIZABETH – Elizabeth Public Schools’ highest achieving eleventh and twelfth graders will be rewarded with vouchers for two tickets to a New Jersey Devils’ home game.The selected students all placed on the district’s Superintendent’s Honor Roll or the Principal’s Honor Roll in the first marking period for their outstanding academic performance.
This reward was made possible through a collaborative effort between the Elizabeth Public Schools and the New Jersey Devils’ Student Honor Roll Program. The program rewards local students for their academic excellence by providing them redeemable vouchers for New Jersey Devils’ tickets. The vouchers entitle the student and a guest to attend one of three home ice professional hockey games at the Prudential Center in Newark.
In Elizabeth, 311 honor students qualified for the reward. The students come from Elizabeth’s six high schools which include: John E. Dwyer Technology Academy; Thomas Edison Career & Technical Academy; Elizabeth High School; Admiral William F. Halsey, Jr. Leadership Academy; Alexander Hamilton Preparatory Academy; and Thomas Jefferson Arts Academy.
“These students represent high academic achievement and I congratulate them for their commitment to their education,” stated Superintendent of Schools Pablo Muñoz. “They are taking advantage of our many academic and career-themed programs that offer an excellent education in our six high schools.”
Board of Education President Carlos Trujillo remarked, “We are proud of these high school students who are being rewarded for their hard work and dedication to succeed.” Trujillo also expressed gratitude to the New Jersey Devils for their commitment to community programs and education, “We are grateful for the generosity of owner Jeff Vanderbeek and the New Jersey Devils for recognizing and rewarding outstanding academic achievement in Elizabeth Public Schools.”
