Awards Night Survey Results

June, 2011


I attended 2011 Awards Night.


I have attended Awards Night in the past.


I plan on attending Awards Night in the future.


I appreciated having the YRHS Jazz Band entertain the audience.


I would like to see the YRHS Male / Female Presidents MC the evening.


I felt the length of the evening was too long.


What do you perceive to be the purpose behind Awards Night?

  • Overall year end awards

  • Spotlight kids achieving excellence

  • Student achievement night

  • Celebration of pursuit of excellence

  • Celebrate accomplishments, not just academics

  • Academic awards and awards for sports that did not have a banquet

  • Celebration of success


Con’t

  • Motivation to push through the last few weeks of school

  • Excellence in Academics, Athletics and the Arts

  • Top awards of students in all areas (don’t repeat banquet sports’ nights)

  • Student awards only

  • Acknowledge student achievements

  • Allow parents to see when their child receives an award

  • Honour our students


I agree the following awards should be given out on Awards Night.


I agree the following awards should be given out on Awards Night.


List some ideas to “better” our present format of Awards Night.

  • Stream line the night – make it more entertaining

  • Speeches – 1 minute timed

  • Send out written invitations / emails to parents of award winners

  • 1 hour timeframe

  • Formal evening – all staff dressed formally or in school colors

  • SRC presidents need to rehearse

  • Principals / VP’s on either side of stage like Commencement, to keep agenda rolling, night moving

  • Arrange award recipients to make way to stage ahead of time

  • Fall / winter sports teams, should not be repeating banquet awards

  • Not “about” teachers, student focussed

  • Keep a personal touch, but not too much information

  • Stream line larger groups (80+ and 90+ and Social Awards)


Con’t

  • Door prizes – big one for end, so audience stays

  • Keep it student focussed

  • Band / choir should have a year end banquet similar to sports teams to hand out their awards – or do it at year end concert

  • Do not hand out “trivial” awards

  • Introduce students formally, formal tone to evening, less joking

  • Students make way to center stage for official award congratulations

  • Chad to take formal pics

  • Ensure major award winners will be present - RSVP

  • Present only Athletes of the Year (not all individual sports teams) – take care of the rest at a pep rally

  • Staff members to help direct traffic, keep students moving towards the stage


List ideas we could do to increase staff participation/attendance at this event.

  • Make it better, people will attend

  • Individual staff are the ones that look bad when they don’t attend

  • Attendance validates what we are trying to do here, teach students to excell

  • Give all staff something to do

  • We need to change our attitude – everyone of us should be there

  • This is a celebration of what we all work for all year

  • No easy answer – a busy week, Gina’s Garden, Band Concert, Awards Night and Senior Drama Night….personal commitments (family and professional obligations)…June is a busy month


Con’t

  • Staff should not be guilted into attending

  • Give the slackers a job

  • Guilt is the only solution I see

  • Count it towards Extra-Curr

  • Don’t have it in June

  • Streamline the evening and shorten the program

  • Staff members involved with tasks, and the presentations

  • Move it to the school day

  • Make it mandatory

  • If you don’t attend, you lose your parking spot for the next year and you have to park in Calder!


Where do we go from here?

  • Strike a committee

  • Review the data and suggestions more closely

  • Address the concerns

  • Make some informed decisions from the survey results as to how to make it better so everyone wants to attend!
