Each month the Georgia Elementary School celebrates the excellent efforts students make each and every day.  The “respectful” interactions they are having with their peers and adults, the “responsible” choices they are making throughout the day, and the “safe” decisions they are implementing through playful interactions and other daily experiences.

During lunch, recognitions are shared and I feel honored to read aloud the great characteristics teachers are seeing in their students. Among their peers, recipients hear their accomplishments and receive a Proud Principal Certificate and pencil.  Friends cheer, adults applaud, and smiles can be seen through different facial expressions.

The best part of a Principal’s day is interacting with students. It brings delight and meaning to our work and makes for a great day.

Here are quotes from Proud Principal Awards:

“You have been a kind and caring friend in the classroom and you are a great role model for your peers.  Thank you for being respectful, responsible, and safe”

“You have a kind heart towards your peers and teachers and you are a great leader for students to follow”

“You are always coming to school smiling and eager to learn.  I love how much you love school.”

“Our classroom community is lucky to have such a great classroom peer”

“You are a respectful listener and active participant in class discussions.  We can count on you to make our class a caring, safe place to be.”
