Keizer students make the grade at Connections Academy

Willamette Connections Academy recently announced the school’s first honor roll for grades K-12. The statewide tuition-free online public school is recognizing hundreds of students across Oregon for outstanding academic achievement during the first semester of the 2020-21 academic year. 

Keizer students who were recognized include: Baylee Whetten, sixth grade; Dario Gonzalez, kindergarten, Paityn Polston, fourth grade; Xzavier Moore, first grade; Brody Bateman, first grade; Clara Seitz, ninth grade; Nicholas Maheu, 10th grade; Kate Collins, 12th grade.

“On behalf of the administration, teachers and counselors at Willamette Connections Academy, we congratulate all the students who earned a spot on the honor roll,” said Chris Long, Willamette Connections Academy Principal. “There’s no question it has been a challenging year for everyone, so we’re thrilled to recognize this year’s list of Honor Roll students.” 

The school’s honor roll qualifications vary by grade levels. Students in kindergarten through 8th grade are eligible for honor roll if they have received “A’s” in all their classes during the first semester of the academic year. To qualify for the honor roll, in 9th through 12th grades, students needed to achieve a GPA of 3.75 and above.
