Leonel Dujardin started this petition to Gaileo Acadamy of Science and Technology Administration

Beginning this year, the Galileo Administration has decided to take out the Award Ceremony and the Student Government Officers' privilege to sit on stage at this year's graduation. They want this year's graduation to have a more equal celebration for each individuals' achievements for reaching this milestone of high school graduation. However, they are doing so by taking out awards recognizing students for outstanding achievements in particular departments and athletic awards. In return, they want to move these awards into our annual Move-Up Assembly. 

We believe it is unfair to the students who have dedicated themselves by working hard for the past 4 years to not be properly recognized in front of their peers and families for the outstanding work they have done at their time in Galileo. We also believe that the Student Government Officers deserve the right to sit up on stage for all their dedication and hard work in the Galileo Community. Taking away their privilege to be honored for their contributions in front of peers and families is unfair since a lot of their blood, sweat, and tears go unnoticed with multiple officers staying past the required time to make sure Galileo remains a great and prospering community. Their alternative to move these awards into the Move-Up Assembly raises the first concern of whether or not if there enough time at the Move-Up Assembly to properly recognize all the students. In addition, parents and families will not be able to see their child or family member be acknowledged for their achievements. This change does not compensate for the parents and families who may not be able to attend the Move-Up Assembly on a school day. In addition, a proposal for a Seniors' Award Night has not been implemented. The lack of proper recognition and unnecessary change to our traditional graduation ceremony is unjust for students and the student's family. This change should not be implemented and our graduation tradition at Galileo Academy of Science and Technology should remain the same.
