Student Recognition

 

Cub Compliments

Compliments (school printed recognition currency) are given to students "caught” doing something in alignment with Cunha’s expectations - Respectful, Responsible, Positive, and Safe.

Staff give these to recognize and encourage students to display positive behavior and to do their best each day.

 

Cub compliments can be used to purchase items from the Student Store or entered into a drawing for a lunchtime dessert on Fridays.

Student of the Week

This award recognizes students who have demonstrated a positive effort in a class or interacting with others at Cunha outside of class. Students receive a certificate, front of the line pass for a week, pencil, announced to the school, and added to the website.

 

These students are also eligible for Outstanding Cub Award.

Outstanding Cub Award

Background:  the program provides staff members with the opportunity to recognize one student for character recognition and/or improvement (in effort, academics, personal, etc.) in alignment with Cunha’s expectations - Respectful, Responsible, Positive, and Safe.

 

This award is designed to recognize and reward students who:

1) Exhibit commendable behavior, enhancing the overall quality of life at Cunha Intermediate School, either through outstanding personal progress or contributions to the classroom and/or campus experience, or

2)     Might not otherwise receive recognition through existing awards programs.

Examples of character traits valued: solving an attendance/tardy problem, participating in the classroom in a noteworthy way, helping a teacher or fellow student in some way, contributing to a greater sense of school spirit and pride, seeing a need and filling it, etc.

 

The Award: the Outstanding Cub Luncheon will occur once per quarter. Each staff member can recognize one student. Staff will attend luncheon with student and present a certificate and explain why the student received the recognition.

Merit Award

Each quarter, Counselors and Administration will examine student grade point average and compare to previous quarter. Students that have the highest improvement (highest positive change) will be recognized at the Outstanding Cub Luncheon and will receive an Outstanding Cub Merit Award.

 

No nomination needed; the top X number (where a natural delineation occurs) of students will receive the award each quarter.

Honor Roll

This award recognizes students who have earned a GPA of 3.25 - 3.89 for the quarter.  These students are given a certificate and are offered a special field trip as recognition for their hard work. Students will also receive a bumper sticker for their first Honor Roll.

Principal’s Honor Roll

This award recognizes students who have earned a GPA of 3.9 or better for the quarter. These students are given a certificate and are offered a special field trip as recognition for their hard work. Students will also receive a Front of the Line Pass, $1 off Dance Coupon, and a bumper sticker (if first Honor Roll).

Student of the Month

This award recognizes students who model ideal Cunha community behavior.  They are top students academically.  They respect others, demonstrate a positive attitude, and are cooperative and supportive.  In addition, they assume responsibility, go above and beyond, and are role models.  As such, a student may only receive this award once during their years at Cunha.

Two students from each grade level are selected based on teacher recommendations and consideration of the criteria described above.  Winners receive Starbucks gift cards, photo and information on the school announcement board, and names on the marquee and website.
