Once a month students of Baker Elementary School have the opportunity of earning various awards given by their teachers. Those awards are Inch and Miles, Best Bobcat, Perfect Attendance, ST Math Progress, and Achieve 3000 Progress.
Inch and Miles Award
Our education philosophy revolves on reinforcing positive behavior and whenever we "catch" our kids doing something good, they receive rewards under the "Inch and Miles" program, inspired by a children's book by a famous college basketball coach about how to achieve success inch by inch until those inches add up to miles.
It's a fun and challenging way to remind out students that good deeds do matter. They receive green-color award for demonstrating the character traits of hard work, enthusiasm, friendship, loyalty, cooperation, self-control, alertness, action, determination, fitness, skill, team spirit, poise and confidence.
The green slips make them eligible for a special treat, lunch with the principal and their own copy of the book.
