Brilliant Bobcat / Recognition

Student recognition programs at Butterfield Canyon Elementary provide an opportunity for students to be acknowledged for positive behavior. Special incentives are awarded to students for demonstrating that they care about themselves, their community, and their school.  The following programs are designed to recognize deserving individuals:

Brilliant Bobcat
Each grade level has a different set of requirements (competency tasks and checkpoints to be completed throughout the year) to earn this award at the end of the year.  At the end of year awards ceremony, a bobcat pennant is received along with a pin for that year the first year a student earns this award. For every subsequent year a student earns the award they will earn a pin for the current year.  Click on the following links to see a printable version of those requirements:
K     1st     2nd     3rd     4th    5th      6th

Leader of the Month
Students from each grade will be chosen by the faculty as the students who best exemplify the leadership habit of the month (two per class).  Students will be invited to a Leadership Luau that will be packed with tropical fun and celebration of their efforts.  A picture will be taken and put on display in the library.

Caught Being a Leader
Students who “PAWS” for Leadership by demonstrating the BIG 3 (being examples to their peers) or Leadership (7 Habits) are are positively reinforced by the intrinsic benefits, verbal praise, and may receive a “Caught Being a Leader” ticket.  Students with a ticket will be able to turn that into the office for a small prize along with a chance to win an activity with the principal, by getting their name on one of the 200 slots on the “Principal’s 200 Club” board.

Classroom Incentives
 Each teacher will use classroom incentives for students who follow the classroom expectations.  See your child’s teacher for more details.
