“I’m really very proud of you all, so keep up the good work,” said Principal Murphy as he handed each student a certificate and letter of congratulations as our May Students of the Month. These talented Walt Whitman students have distinguished themselves in academic classes, earning the praise of the teachers and administrators alike. Our Students of the Month have successfully demonstrated the ability to juggle demands of increased academic standards, while simultaneously participating in numerous co-curricular endeavors. We congratulate all of our winners, as well as the teachers and dedicated parents who have contributed to their success.
