Hawk Pride is a monthly award given at RJEMS to students nominated by teachers for showing the following characteristics: Honesty, Awesome Attitude, Welcoming, Kind, Polite, Responsible, Involved, Dedicated & Effective. These students help build our positive school climate and we think they deserve a "Thank You!" In addition to the award, the Hawk Pride winners are posted in the RJEMS commons as well as the Grand Rapids Herald Review.
