DIXFIELD — Dirigo Middle School students cheered their classmates Friday afternoon in a schoolwide assembly honoring those who strive to become successful students and citizens.

Habits of Mind awards were presented to students who have shown leadership, responsibility and strength in meeting educational standards and responding to feedback.

Fifteen students received awards for meeting quality standards, and 14 students received certificates for responding to feedback.

“We want these characteristics in students when they are problem solving and don’t have easy solutions,” Principal Mike Poulin said.

Students in each grade were also recognized for attending school regularly, trying their best and getting along well with their peers and the staff. They were chosen by a majority of their teachers.

A special certificate was presented to eighth-grader Brandon L’Italien, who successfully completed an online class in Algebra I.

Students receiving Scholastic Citizenship Awards were:
Grade six, Jacob Chow, Shaun-Patrick Child, Jenyce Campbell, Arianna Boulanger, Tori Bellegarde, Destiny Urdsick, Noah Adams, Eryka Moretto, Alexa Perreault, Aiden Johnson, Owen Libby, Spencer Jacques, Jacob Gallant and Abby Dawson;

Grade seven, Katie Morse, Carly Ryerson, Kody Moretto, Chase Clark, Breaunna Domina, Ashley Leavitt, Haley Leavitt, Alyssa McTyre, Sarah Milledge, Adrianna Belskis, Morgan Gallant and Emily Fretz; and
