Our Scholastic Awards Ceremony

Three times a school year, after the Report Cards go home, Nelson Elementary School holds its Award Ceremony.  It's actually really low key.  It's something we just do with the staff and kids

We all sit in a circle and all of the classes do it together in the Multi-Purpose Room at the school.  We each take turns presenting our pins and when we do, we describe what we're recognizing the person for and then say their name at the end.  It's actually super sweet because the kids often know who is being described and are excited to guess which of their classmates it will be.

As teachers, we decided that if we made it too big an event (by inviting guests, etc.) it would have some people feeling badly, whereas keeping it casual but still intimate really makes everyone feel okay about it, whether they get recognized that time or not.
