SHINE AWARD: Highlighting Outstanding Students of Character
A Parkwood 5th grade student received the "Shine Award." In order to
recognize students that demonstrate outstanding character, the district has
created the “Shine Award-Highlighting
Outstanding Students of Character”. This award is for students that demonstrate two or more pillars of character consistently in each building.
The character education pillars include: Citizenship, Caring, Trustworthiness,
Fairness, Respect, and Responsibility. Each building nominates one student per
month. The student nominated in each
building will be awarded with a certificate and balloon bouquet by district
staff and/or board of education members. The nominated students will also be recognized at the monthly board of education meeting.
