The students at O'Rourke Middle School are outstanding and exhibit excellence on a daily basis in the areas of academics, arts, sports and community. It is our privilege to highlight some of these students under the "Spotlight" and honor them for their hard work and contributions to school life.

It is our privilege to honor those students who, through hard work and a dedication to excellence in academics, achieve grade-point averages that meet the criteria of one of three Honor Rolls that are maintained at O'Rourke.
There are hundreds of acts of kindness and thoughtfulness that happen every day at O'Rourke and although we don't know about them all, we like to recognize our students who get "caught" in the act of helping out, expressing support, being a good sport, sharing and countless other demonstrations of good character.
Congratulations to these wonderful students who got "caught" in the act during the 2016-17 school yer:
Beginning with November, each month students are recognized who demonstrate a positive attitude towards learning and respect towards others. Students who demonstrate consistent effort, appropriate conduct, responsible behavior, a cooperative attitude and respect for others are recognized. Honorees have their name and picture posted on the bulletin board outside the main office and receive a letter of congratulations and a certificate of recognition from Principal Colleen Wolff.
