Weissman, Shupper Chosen as BRHS Students of the Week


BRIDGEWATER, NJ - Each week, two students at Bridgewater-Raritan High School will be honored as students of the week.

Students are chosen by teachers and staff in the high school.

The students of the week for the week of Feb. 6 are:

  • Arielle Weissman - (nominated by John Sirusas) Arielle contributes to the BR spirit by being exceptionally caring and supportive. She is part of the team in the employment orientation class every morning, helping kids develop skills that they will use far beyond the classroom. She is also involved in the PE Partners program, which promotes physical skills through support in gym class. Having fun is an important part of the education process too, so Arielle volunteers to assist with interaction int he after school "Get Social" club, and she plans events run by the Council for Exceptional children. Between classes, Arielle is often seen assisting kids who need a little extra help adjusting a backpack or jacket, or finding a lost item. Arielle is in the National Honor Society and also plays lacrosse on the BR team. She plans to keep playing in college and study kinesthesiology, learning to help people in a medical setting.
  • Jason Shupper - (nominated by Deborah Huff) Jason is a model student. He is consistently focused, engaged and on task every day in my class. Jason is very mature and takes his academic and elective subjects seriously. He is an exceptional student who shows kindness, empathy and is always available to help his fellow students with their projects. His peers frequently seek him out for advice and support on their projects. Jason exemplifies the characteristics of an outstanding citizen and is most deserving of this honor.

Editors Note - Every week we will publish the BRHS Students of the Week. Congratulations to all those students recognized.
