Lake Mary Elementary believes in celebrating student success. When providing student recognition, it is our goal to look at the whole child and reinforce positive qualities. Students are also recognized within their classrooms for academic, social and overall citizenship achievements as teachers deem appropriate.
As a school, we feel it is important to have school wide recognition of students’ accomplishments. One of the highest honors at Lake Mary Elementary is being named as an honor student. We have established some clear guidelines for these recognitions.
9 Weeks Awards for 2nd-5th Graders
“A” Academic Honor Student: A student that earned all “A’s” for the quarter and demonstrates all around positive behavior. These students receive a certificate and a pencil.
“A/B” Academic Honor Student: A student that earned all “A/B’s” for the quarter and demonstrates all around positive behavior. These students receive a certificate and a pencil.
Citizenship Award: A student that had no areas of behavioral or social concerns. These students receive a certificate and pencil.
Classroom Achievement Award: This award is for students who do not meet the criteria for “A” or “A/B” Honor Student and based on teacher discretion. This should be limited to no more than 4 or 5 per class that have NOT received any other recognition.

Teacher’s Choice Awards
Please understand that not all students may receive an award. However, this will provide opportunities to celebrate students’ academic and social success. Students receiving intervention services will also be eligible for awards. Parents will be notified by invitation if their child is receiving an award.
Since kindergarten and first grade do not give traditional letter grades, students are celebrated within their classrooms throughout the year for academic and social accomplishments. Additionally, at the end of the year, parents & family members are invited to attend an end of year celebration.
