Monthly NEU Rally’s
On the first Friday of the month we come together as a school to promote College/University awareness. We celebrate each classroom’s university through chants and college gear. We acknowledge the monthly valedictorians, character of the month, and reader of the month.
Each grade level selects a high achieving student as the Valedictorian for the month. Students are presented to the school during our NEU rallys. The principal reads the excerpt submitted by the students’ grade level teachers as they come to receive their diploma, a graduate cord, and a school spirit backpack. Their pictures are taken and posted in the library.
Reader of the Month
Teachers select a student as the Reader of the Month. This student is recognized for demonstrating high interest and motivation towards independent reading. Monte Vista uses Accelerated Reader and Achieve 3000 to encourage independent daily reading.
Through character education we promote anti-bullying and a positive/safe learning environment. Student council discusses and promotes the character trait of the month with students.
Trimester Award Assemblies
Towards the end of every trimester, select students are recognized for their academics, character, STEP qualities, and overall reading.
