AMAZING THINGS ARE HAPPENING - Celebrating Student Participation and Learning

How did you feel the last time you were recognized for something? That oh-so-good feeling that goes along with being celebrated, is proven to motivate and inspire further engagement and connections with learning.


It wasn't too long ago that we touched on how we celebrate students here at NP3! Celebrating is happening! One of the beauties of celebrating and recognizing students is that it can be about something seemingly small, yet have a big and lasting effect. Recognition matters. Keep it up NP3!

You Betta Recognize

The video below shows how recognition meets self-awareness!
