February 2019 ROAR Award Winners

February 2019 ROAR Awards Handed Out

A few years ago, NMS began a new program, which recognizes students for achievement and positive school contributions each month.  The ROAR Award is given by each grade's cluster and Unified Arts to acknowledge students who have been Respectful, On-time,  (displaying a positive) Attitude, and Responsible.  The goal is to recognize students who not only take care of basic expectations in class but are good citizens and role models in our community.  Teachers and faculty get together and decide on two students, who are most deserving for each month of the school year.

We also connect the ROAR program with our TIGERS culture-building protocol.  We are specifically looking for students who are Trustworthy, have Integrity, are Generous, are Empathetic, are Responsible, and show Strength. 

Award winners receive a certificate, a TIGERS band, a coupon for a free book at the book fair, bumper stickers for their parents’ cars, and their individual picture displayed in the Main Office for the month.
