Each block Peoria Accelerated teachers nominate students who exemplify the characteristics of a strong student. A committee of teachers and administrators then come together and determine a winner for each content area on campus. This block, over 27 students were nominated. The winners of the Block 1 Student of the Block Awards included the following students.
Did you know that Peoria Accelerated High School recognizes two students every week for their academic achievement and classroom contributions? We call this our Top Dog Awards and unlike the Tiny Token Raffles held Thursdays at the end of 3rd period, our winners are not randomly selected. Teachers have the opportunity to nominate students each week and two winners are recognized on the announcements on Thursdays during 2nd period. All winners receive their teacher nomination, a lunch fast pass for the following week, and a $5 Harkins gift card. We love to celebrate hard work, growth mindsets, and collaboration in our classrooms. Winners pictures are posted on social media each week, but here's a snapshot of our winners so far this block! Congrats to all of you on your hard work. Keep it up and finish strong!

Students were asked for input at the end of block 4 regarding our Tiny Token Store Menu, and we heard you! PAHS will be adding some exciting items to our store menu. We're expanding our store to bring you more variety, including Cheez-Its and more fresh fruit options. We'll also be adding a premium lanyard as well as a limited number of LG Headphone sets. Students can earn tiny tokens by displaying positive behaviors on campus and in the classroom. It's just another way it pays to have #bulldogpride!
Congratulations to our Block 4 Students of the Block, our Student of the 2015-16 Year, and our Academic Achievers.
