Monthly Award Assemblies Honoring our "Super Sharks"
Each month from January to May, teachers in both in-person learning and distant learning are looking for students that demonstrate the monthly award focus. These students are then selected and their names are forwarded to the front office. The students receive an award certificate and a prize. Students names & pictures are included in a monthly award video that is shown through Google Classroom.
Award focus for February : Problem Solving
Problem solving is the act of defining a problem; determining the cause of the problem; identifying, prioritizing, and selecting alternatives for a solution; and implementing a solution. The problem-solving process is having accountability for the words you speak, the things you do, and the choices you make. Setting a good example for others and doing what is expected of you in all situations. It’s also saying what you mean and truly apologizing for wrongs.
Award focus for March : Cooperation
Cooperation is the act of listening carefully to others and being sure you understand what they are saying. Students who show cooperation share, take turns, compromise and do your part. Cooperation is showing appreciation to others, encouraging people, and making people feel needed. People who cooperate do not isolate others and include everyone in activities.
Award focus for April : Perseverance
Completing a task even when it becomes boring, difficult, or discouraging. Sticking with what you are trying to do even if it does not work the first time, exercising patience, and not giving up. Perseverance is that drive that helps you keep working even when you want to quit. Without perseverance, you can’t finish your work, get passing grades and learn what you need to learn. Perseverance is important to get you through the challenge and because often spending the time and effort when it's needed keeps you from a more difficult outcome later.
Award focus for May : Citizenship
Working to help make your local and school community better. Doing your share and cooperating with others by getting involved with community service projects. Stay informed, obeying laws and rules, respecting local authorities, being a good neighbor and protecting the environment.
