Having the discipline to be on time, every day and to every class, is a habit that leads to success in school. But dependable students don’t always get the attention and praise that they deserve.
Topper Freshmen Academy Principal, J. Carter Payne launched a new initiative at LAHS, called Random Acts of Recognition (RAR). He found a fun way to recognize a student who had perfect attendance since January 2016 and also has never been late or tardy to any classes this school year.
Right at the start of class, he surprised all of the students in Whitney Pomeroy’s class with cookies, explaining that they were celebrating the good habits of the student with perfect attendance.
“It’s fun to have a chance to walk into a classroom and highlight something great that kids are doing,” Payne said.
The program will continue with a monthly Random Act of Recognition. Students and parents wanting tips for improving attendance or on time management can call 505.663.3252.
