Congratulations to Gia Federici- the recipient of the Sussex County School Counselors’ Association 8th Grade Caring Award!


Gia was honored at Sussex County Community College on June 1st as the recipient of The Caring Award for Glen Meadow Middle School. This program is sponsored by the Sussex County School Counselor’s Association. Gia was honored along with 19 other deserving Sussex County middle school students. Gia was nominated by so many of her teachers. Some of the words that come to mind about Gia from our teachers and 8th grade School Counselor, Mrs. Keane are…joyful, positive, easy-going, considerate, respectful, patient, committed, and steadfast. Gia is very well-rounded and is involved in many school activities, namely being inducted into the National Junior Honor Society, being in the school musical, “Dear 2020”, and is on the Field Hockey team. Gia is very helpful to her classmates, you can often hear Gia say, “if you need me…”. So often, her friends and classmates seek her because they know she will help them. In her kindness to others, Gia tells her teachers, coaches, and theater directors how much she appreciates them; she is always ready to lend a hand to the adults in charge. Gia is a friend to all. Gia is seen volunteering for activities conducted by the National Junior Honor Society. Recently, Gia has also been selected as the Student of the Month for Social Studies and Science. Gia is an all-around wonderful role model for her peers. All of us at Glen Meadow congratulate Gia…we are so proud of Gia, her accomplishments, her dazzling smile, her big heart, and most importantly choosing kindness as a lifestyle!
