Student of the Marking Period

Student of the Marking Period Program

The Alpine Student of the Marking Period Program in the Alpine Elementary School is based on qualities such as character, leadership, and citizenship, not solely on academics. The student of the month must be a diligent student, complete his/her assignments on time; show a strong effort to learn subjects to the best of their ability; prepare for class; and, has good classroom participation. The student of the month demonstrates excellent behavior in and out of the classroom, is well mannered, and respectful to both peers and teachers. The student of the Marking Period displays excellent citizenship by working together with classmates in a cooperative attitude, and exhibiting good behavior. Many such students display leadership qualities and serve as role models for their peers. Lastly, the student of the Marking Period demonstrates exemplar character through his/her compassion, honesty, trustworthiness, responsibility, optimism, and loyalty by helping to create a positive school environment.

Each Marking Period the Homeroom teachers, Special area teachers, and Administrators can nominate students for that Marking Period. There is a limit of 4 students that may be selected from grades K-2 and 2 students from grades 3 and 4 as long as they have met the criteria. The students will have demonstrated the “Big Three”: Do the Right Thing, Treat People Right, Do Your Personal Best

Each marking period the students who receive this honor will be rewarded with some special privileges: for example a breakfast or luncheon in their honor.
