Impact to My Classroom

# of Students Impacted: 180

Our goal at Lakewood Elementary was to create a school-wide culture that emphasized the importance of academic growth and celebrates student achievement. We held school wide academic assemblies to honor scholars who received Honor Roll or Principal's List. Scholars received an Honor Roll t-shirt at a the assembly as well as an honor roll certificate. All scholars who recieved honor roll also had a sign reading "My student received Honor Roll at Lakewood Elementary" placed in their yards. Scholar's families were invited to attend the assembly and ate a special breakfast with their scholars after the assembly. Scholars receiving high marks on common assessments throughout the school year were recognized for their efforts through weekly personalized incentives. 

Having a school culture that emphasized academic achievement caused our scholars to be more aware of their academic status.  This caused an increase in test scores, grades and overall academic achievement. Through this encouragement, scholars had increased motivation and overall pride in academics. Scholars had more interest in self-monitoring of their grades, test scores and overall academic success. Lakewood school culture and climate has been changed  and the student morale increased.
