Awards

We are proud of our students and their many outstanding achievements.  Recognition is given monthly as well as at the end of each trimester to recognize various accomplishments.  Included are monthly awards for Terrific Kids, Math Masters, Super Readers, and Writing Wranglers, and trimester awards for Rising Bronco, 3 R’s PBIS award and Reading Book Club awards.  We believe that this helps to promote school and personal pride.

Terrific Kids: Each month “Terrific Kids” are selected from each classroom and are recognized with special certificates.  Terrific kids must:

  • Exemplify the theme word of the month

  • Display self-control and citizenship

  • Display a positive attitude

  • Obey school rules

  • Show respect and consideration of others

  • Be responsible

Math Master, Super Reader, Writing Wrangler: These monthly awards are presented to a student chosen by their teacher for excellent performance in each subject matter.

3 R’s Award- Certificate awarded to one student per classroom

Criteria: Each teacher will give a PBIS award to a student who follows the Great Western PBIS expectations (Respectful, Responsible and Ready).

Rising Bronco Award- Certificate awarded to one student per classroom.

Criteria: Teacher’s choice for most improved student, can be based on academics, behavior, motivation, etc.

AR Point Clubs- Certificate awarded to each student reaching specific point 

Amounts.  See table below.

We believe students need to enjoy reading beyond their regular classroom assignments.  Students are awarded with special recognition for achieving “Book Club” status and accelerated reader (AR) points.  We hope these incentives will help to stimulate students to read more and enjoy it in the process.  In addition, all extra time you can spend to encourage your student to read and/or make reading an important activity in your home will ultimately help your student to become a successful reader and learner.
