Once a week, the classroom teachers pick one of their students who shows exemplary behavior either academically or socially. Every Friday, the students' names are called over the intercom to go to the office to receive a certificate from their teacher, the principal congratulates the student, he/she chooses a special pencil and gets a hug or high five from the mini Cherrywood Bear.
The Cherrywood Bear
100% Homework Club
The principal rewards each child for turning in their homework every day for an entire month. These students receive a goody bag with a pencil, bookmark or similar prize and some candy each month Sept - May. Each month more than 250 students receive these 100% homework goody bags. Keep up the good work!!!
High Five Winners
Throughout the week teachers, yard duty supervisors, staff observe students doing a good job and award that student with a High Five Certificate. This certificate is turned into their teacher and there is a weekly drawing in the classroom for the High Five Winner of the Week. The winner gets to choose a small prize from our prize table. At the end of the month, all students who received a High Five, winner or not, are put into a drawing for larger prizes. We love it when students choose to do good things at school!!!
Student of the Month
The fourth and fifth grade Student of the Month winners show academic excellence in the classroom. Once a month, at the Spirit Assembly, the Students of the Month are awarded a certificate and recognized in front of the rest of the school. Pictures of the monthly winners are posted in the office to see. Parents are invited to come and take pictures of their exceptional students.
