Student of the Week

A lot of schools recognize "Students of the Week".  In today's blog, I will highlight how Scott County High School not only recognizes academic excellence but also highlights students for leadership, effort, spirit and most improved. By recognizing students in different areas, it appreciates different strengths and it helps develop an appreciation for hard work and growth.  To develop a "Growth Mindset" we must recognize student effort and their willingness to push themselves for constant improvement. The program at SCHS does a great job of recognizing student and helps develop a growth mindset with the students. 

Mrs. Julie Marshall, French teacher, organizes the program.  One of the most unique aspects of the program is the prize list students get to select his or her prizes. What I really like is how teachers and administration personalize prizes as they add their own unique ideas to the list.  There is even a prize that allows lunch with the Principal.  Below is a list of prizes students can select:
