The Cougar Challenge
WE ARE UPPING OUR GAME! THIS WILL REALLY BE A CHALLENGE!
The Cougar Challenge is a program designed to celebrate our students who do “the job of a student” at an exemplary level. At TVCS, we define “the job of a student” as:
For completing these jobs at an exemplary level, we will celebrate students with a fun assembly (30-40 minutes) at the end of each semester. Details about the assemblies will remain secret! We want the students to be surprised.
To join the celebrations, a student must do the following things:
1. Complete at least 95% of all classwork.
2. Complete at least 95% of all homework.
3. Be present at school at least 98% of the days in the semester
4. Consistently exhibit to staff members and students behaviors which enhance the
educational climate and culture at TVCS. (Behavior referrals would not show this pattern and
would preclude a student from attending the celebration. Consistent poor choices in a
classroom which do not earn a behavior referral, but are not contributing to a positive
educational culture and climate, would also preclude a student from attending the celebration.)
Besides being celebrated at the assembly, each student will receive a dogtag keychain. A special dogtag will be issued for perfect attendance in a semester.
Our hope is to encourage our wonderful students and families to exhibit excellent work habits, superior attendance, and respectful behavior!
