Ocracoke School students were honored Monday in the school gym for academic achievement in attaining the honor roll and principal’s list for the second nine-week session.

To attend, the families and friends had to navigate big puddles in pouring rain.

Ocracoke School Principal Leslie Cole said there were 32 students from grades three to 12 on the Honor Roll, which measures grading scores of 85 to 92, and 26 students on the Principal’s List, which is 93 to 100.

“So excellent job,” she said. “That’s 58 students.”

Following the academic awards were the Dolphin Awards. Recipients of Dolphin Awards are chosen by their teachers for their enthusiasm, special interests and contributions to their classes.
