Awards and Recognition

·At Nohl Canyon, we strive on building positive character along with our students becoming well-rounded citizens.  Throughout the year, students are recognized for their positive behavior and excellent academic efforts!  

Student of the Month Awards: LINK

o   SOM character traits are taken from John Wooden’s book “Inch and Miles: The Journey to Success”

o   Each month, the character trait is portrayed on a banner, which hangs in our quad area.

o   For awards, I visit each classroom and recognize the one student recipient for that month’s theme, chosen by the teacher (in some classes{upper grade}, students vote for a peer student who they feel best demonstrates the character trait)

o   A picture is taken of each recipient with myself and posted on the weekly school newsletter

o   For the months of November, March, and June, there is no SOM, as we hold our Trimester RAD awards.
