Awards ceremony guidelines

1. Not every student in your class has to get an award. This is in alignment with our focus on moving each of our students up to the next level and student goal setting.

2. Only send home invitations to parents whose students will be receiving an award.

Here is a list of campus wide awards, but you may give out classroom specific awards at your discretion:

Perfect Attendance - must have 0 absences and 0 tardies - comes with a Lasagna House free kids meal gift certificate

Honor Roll - All As including behavior

AB Honor Roll - all As and Bs including behavior

Principal's Award - 1 student in your class who you feel has shown the most respect, responsibility and character this 9 weeks, keep a record so as not to repeat - comes with a special pencil

Cody Cub - 1 student who has tried their very best and work really hard but may not be passing

Team player award - 1 student who is most helpful and works well with others

Reading, Math, Science, Social Studies - the students with the highest grade in that subject

Next 9 weeks we will add the BUG (Bringing Up Grades award) for students whose grades have gone up in at least one subject and maintained in all the others (including behavior)

Put a post it on my door with your thoughts about this article - if you do, I have a prize for you.
