Eagle Mountain Elementary is starting a "positive action" plan to encourage a more pleasant dining experience for your children and visitors in our EME Eats Cafe. Each week, one class from each grade level will be award the SILVER Spoon Certificate for the week and their class will be entered in a drawing for the Golden Spoon Award passed out during our EME Awards Assembly (4 times a year). Golden Spoon Award winners will be treated to a "Principal Pizza Party!!"

Mrs. DeCorte's class is our first winner! Way to go, Mrs. DeCorte's homeroom class for modeling "Eagle Positive Behavior" in our Cafe!

How does a class earn a Silver Spoon Certificate?

  • Maintain a Zone 1-soft voice level (inside voice with a neighbor)
  • Raise hand for help
  • Remember condiments, fork and spoon
  • Clean up after themselves
  • Stay seated until dismissed
  • Be respectful to self, others, and school property
