WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP – Washington Township’s three middle schools – Bunker Hill, Chestnut Ridge and Orchard Valley – recently presented their annual Dan Rozmes Spirit Awards during separate in-building presentations.


The awards are named after Rozmes as a way to remember and celebrate his legacy. During a career that spanned more than 30 years, Rozmes served the Washington Township School District as a teacher, guidance counselor, principal and friend before passing away on July 16, 2010, after a long battle with leukemia.


The Dan Rozmes Spirit Award winners include: Delaney Schwartz and Sebastian Major (BHMS); Giavanna DeVito and Israel Harris (CRMS); and Angelina Alvarez and Owen Smith (OVMS). The eighth-grade students were chosen by their teachers, school counselors and administration because they possess the characteristics that Mr. Rozmes promoted – selflessness, charisma, and an upbeat, positive approach to others.


The District will celebrate Danny Rozmes Spirit Day on Friday, March 12, 2021. A District-wide jeans day for staff will raise funds to benefit the Dan Rozmes Spirit Awards at the middle level and the Dan Rozmes Good Guy and Good Girl Awards at Washington Township High School.
