A Note from Mrs. Davis:
At the beginning of November we had our Digging for Excellence Student Recognition. This is a program to motivate and encourage students by recognizing and rewarding excellence in school. The program is designed to promote and recognize academic achievement and improvement. The success of the program is based on power principles that give the program its life and energy: performance and pride. The Silverado Digging for Excellence Team works with staff, students, and our PTA to plan recognition events and provide tangible incentives to reward and acknowledge excellence in school. Students are recognized for their achievements through the following levels of academic performance. Tickets are given to recognize the following levels:
• Gold - Superintendent’s Award – 4.0
• Silver - Principal’s Award – 3.5 -3.99
• Blue - Honor Award 3.0 – 3.49
Students were able to use these tickets for drawings of gift cards (donated by our generous PTA) and pizza lunches, CUB cart rides to class, mile and tardy passes, picking a song to play during lunch, spin the wheel for Silverado spirit items, and of course food treats!
The next Digging for Excellence will be after trimester 2 in March. At that time we will also be recognizing students whose GPA went up from the first trimester.
