  • West Nyack Elementary WildCAT Club Celebrates Students Doing the Right Thing

    Posted by Martin Cox on 2/14/2019

    The "CAT" in West Nyack Elementary's WildCAT Club stands for "Caught Acting Terrifically."

    On Monday, the WildCAT Club had a new inductee.

    Fourth Grade Student Julius Marinaccio found a wallet containing money on his bus, and handed the wallet in to the Bus Monitor.

    "I am very proud of Julius," said Annie Streiff, West Nyack Elementary Principal. "Julius has always been a leader among his peers, and it does not surprise me in the least that he exercised his superb judgment and problem-solving skills when he found the wallet.  I am sure that the wallet's owner was very grateful to Julius, too!"

    I was fortunate to time a visit to West Nyack Elementary on Monday morning at the same moment when Ms. Streiff was ready to recognize Julius for his good deed.

    "Students inducted into this 'club' receive a Wildcat key chain and a certificate, and their pictures are placed on the Wildcat Wall of Fame in the front hallway of the school," said Ms. Streiff.

    Congratulations to Julius Marinaccio for inspiring others to do the right thing, and many thanks to Principal Ms. Annie Streiff for celebrating the positive decision-making of her students.
