Scholars' of the Month

Mar. 08, 2017

In November, our staff decided to re-examine how a child earns Student in Good Standing and Scholar of the Month. The monthly certificate is meant to acknowledge students when they go "above and beyond" in their classrooms, leadership time, recess time, and in their wider community. The acknowledgement started becoming about who didn't get Scholars' of the Month and not about who DID get Scholars' of the Month. 

That being said, our staff had many meetings and discussions about ways that we can continue to acknowledge those students who are reaching beyond our set expectations. This is where the new standards were born. 

Please take a moment to look over the updated version of how a student earns both Student in Good Standing (SIGS) or Scholar of the Month (SOTM).
