Antonio Puopolo Named February Student of the Month

Hilltop Country Day School is pleased to announce that Antonio Puopolo ’20 was chosen by the faculty and staff of Hilltop Country Day School to be Student of the Month for February.

Nominations are solicited from all faculty and staff for Upper School students, grades 5-8, who have exhibited exceptional academic success in all of their classes during the month, and who have also modeled the school’s Core Values of Honesty, Respect, Responsibility, and Kindness.

“We feel it is important to recognize not only the academic success of our students, but also highlight those who are leaders of our school community and model the qualities and characteristics that we value and work hard to instill in our students,” said Head of School Peter Gordon.


Antonio, who joined Hilltop this fall, won the school competition of the National Geographic Bee and is an accomplished student overall, earning consistently high marks.

“Antonio’s enthusiasm and positive energy are apparent in all of his classes and activities,” read one nomination. “He is always considerate of others and inspires a joy of learning and an excitement about each academic challenge that is infectious.  A true gentleman, Antonio demonstrates impeccable manners and a helpful hand with his peers and his teachers.”

Congratulations to Antonio on this wonderful honor.
