We wanted to provide some helpful information about our Tiger Pride Assemblies. Tiger Pride is a monthly celebration assembly held on the last Friday of the month. (Or close to the last Friday of the month.) Tiger Pride is about celebration and focused on our students. The students LOVE Tiger Pride assembly!
- Each assembly is listed on the school calendar.
- Tiger Pride always start at 2:30 and usually lasts 30 minutes, give or take a few minutes.
- You can take your student with you after the assembly and they will not be counted absent.
- Parents are encouraged and welcome to attend.
- We have replaced Student of the Month with Student of the Week this year.
- Coach J and Principal Miller are the “Masters of Ceremonies.”
Some of the things we celebrate:
Student of the Week: Teachers will let their students know the criteria for this. It is up to each individual grade level or classroom let the students know if they are the Student of the Week. No ONE recognition is greater than another. Here are some ideas:
- Helper of the week
- Birthday week
- Improved behavior
- Improved academics
- Good Character
Special Class: Each special class teacher(Art, Music,PE,Library,Computer) may choose a class to recognized based on criteria set within the classroom.
Academic Achievement: Teachers choose various students they would like to recognize for academic achievement or improvement.
Go Green: Students who stayed on their green card or not had any behavior infractions are recognized.
Bucket Fillers: Students who have modeled examples of our monthly character education words are recognized.
Tiger Token Tallies: Students and classrooms can earn Tiger Tokens for good behavior. We keep a running total throughout the year of classrooms who collect the most Tiger Tokens.
Box Top Tallies: Every year we have a Box Tops Challenge. We will announce the classrooms in the lead collecting Box Tops.
Perfect Attendance: This is defined by being present at school. Your body has to be at school for perfect attendance. We sometimes have questions about excused absences. There are times a student must be absent from school. If their body is not here they are not considered “in attendance.” The only think that does not count against them is leaving early after the Tiger Pride so you do not have to wait for your student.
Ice Cream Cake/Lunchroom Conduct: Students with good behavior at lunch are recognized with purple Tiger Tokens. Once a month we draw 40 purple Tiger Tokens and those students receive Dairy Queen ice cream cake at lunch time the following week.
*Celebrations and recognitions are subject to change throughout the year.
We strive to shine a positive light on student achievement and student character while keeping the event light-hearted and upbeat. Tiger Pride Events are for the students of Willard East and we appreciate you keeping the best interests and well being of our student body at the forefront. We look forward to seeing you at our Tiger Pride Events throughout the school year.
