The spirit of this recognition system is for all staff members to have personal conversations explaining the positive impacts that the students have had on the school's campus. There are several strengths about using this award system.

Student of the Day Program

(Founder / Coordinator)

In 2015, I created a Student of Day program to give teachers a platform for celebrating fantastic students. Each week, I collected teacher recommendations for student celebrations and prepared a set of certificates. The certificates described why the students were receiving the award and were signed by two members of the administration and two students with leadership positions at the school. Each morning, the school spotlighted the Students of the Day on the morning announcements, and a small team of my students delivered the certificates and took a photograph of the student receiving the award.
