- Miscellaneous Recognitions (as determined by individual teacher)
Criteria for receiving awards for the above accomplishments will be furnished under separate cover to parents and students in these grade levels.

Special Area Peacefest Celebration!
Each class is held accountable as a team. Teamwork is a group of people working together toward a common goal. Our students are working to earn a “Peacefest” – offered on the last day of each 9 weeks.
Here is how it works: A large Peace “buck” is visibly displayed in each special area class. The “buck” is divided into 3 pieces. The class keeps the “buck” intact by working together to follow directions and behave appropriately. The goal is to have 1-3 pieces of the “buck” left at the end of class. Upon doing so, the class is awarded 1 small Peace “buck” to be taken and kept in their homeroom.
Eighty-five percent (85%) of the total “bucks” that are possible to earn in a nine weeks must be earned from all Special Areas combined in order to participate in the 9 weeks Peacefest. Any class not earning 85% of the “bucks” will receive separate services that day. The following rules apply to each individual within each class. Any student receiving a 2 = Needs Improvement, in personal development in any special area class will have the following consequences enforced during the Peacefest.
1. “2” out of the 3 special areas = Loss of 10 minutes
2. “2” out of the 3 special areas = Loss of 20 minutes and No Prize Eligibility
3. “2” out of the 3 special areas = No Peacefest Participation
