Contest of Awesome
Three times a year our school has a Contest of Awesomeness. For two weeks, kids must get all their work complete and keep from getting a blue slip or a white slip. Teachers help them set goals and give encouragement and feedback to support their efforts. Those kids who “stay awesome” are invited to the Awesome Party. We play games, have snacks, and get extended recess. Students who don’t make it still get to come for their regular recess as well.
