Pillars of Character – HALLWAY GRADE-LEVEL CHARACTER TRAITS
The monthly student recognition awards are based upon character traits and grade-level themes. Teachers nominate their students and there are 5 awards per month, one per grade level, based upon the grade-level theme. Students receive a letter from Mrs. Vaccaro, their certificate, a group photo, the teacher's recommendation form, gift certificate, ribbon, pencils, Elementary and Character Education bracelets, and other positive reinforcement items. Hallways are labeled with banners identifying the specific grade-level theme. These themes continue throughout the grade-level classroom lessons, in addition to being reinforced during classroom presentations by the Guidance Counselor.
There is also a monthly Citizen, Leader, and Principal Award.
Congratulations to our students, who are all positive role models !
