Recognition and Celebrations • High Flying Fridays – Every Friday morning all students will gather in the gym. We will use this time to recognize students for specific positive academic behaviors and choices made by Nance students each week. We will also recognize classes who have excelled in a particular area such as 100% homework, perfect attendance, or no tardies. This is a brief, informal celebration designed to be engaging and fun for students. • Celebration of Reading - Every 6 weeks we will have a reading celebration. This will not be an award ceremony, it will celebrate reading. • Award Ceremonies – Every 6 weeks will have an awards ceremony where we will recognize “Kick it Up.”
