Do the Right Thing
We have partnered with the Albany Police Department and the City of Albany on “Do the Right Thing,” an initiative that acknowledges middle and high school students for their accomplishments, positive behavior and good deeds.
Worthy students are nominated by school staff, parents, police officers and community members.
Each month, of those nominated, 10 students from each middle school and 20 from Albany High will be selected to receive a T-shirt, a certificate of acknowledgement and a small prize. Of the semi-finalists, one student from each middle school and three students from Albany High will named winners and all will receive a tablet. (Students at Albany International Center and Tony Clement Center for Education will be included in those numbers.)
Prizes are donated courtesy of our community partners at Sovrana Pizza & Deli, Spinners Pizza & Subs and Stewart's Shops.
Behaviors that might earn a student recognition include striving to do well in school; helping peers, family and neighbors; working to overcome obstacles with grace and compassion; shining academically, athletically or artistically; or being overall good citizens in school, at home and in our city.
People can nominate students from the following schools:
- Albany High School
- Albany International Center
- North Albany Middle School
- Stephen and Harriet Myers Middle School
- Tony Clement Center for Education
- William S. Hackett Middle School
