Tiger and Blue Day Awards

Tiger Awards and Blue Day Awards


Each month Laurelwood holds a Blue Day Assembly where students are recognized for being great citizens or for displaying characteristics like those of our chosen Life Long Learning Skills. 

The kindergarten teachers have also chosen to add a monthly award called the “Tiger Award.”  We feel it is important that each child’s strengths are recognized at some point in the year. These Tiger Awards are much like the Blue Day Awards, in that they are given to one or two students each month.  They are awarded to students who are excelling in a certain area behaviorally or academically.  Some criteria for receiving these awards can be (but are not limited to):

  • Being responsible
  • Acting as a role model
  • Cooperating with others
  • Helping others
  • Always trying your best

If you child is chosen for a Blue Day or Tiger Award, you will be notified by e-mail.  I kindly ask that you do not ask me to give your child a certain award.  I do my best to recognize every child throughout the year that celebrates their unique strengths!

Room 4 has PE every Monday.  I highly recommend students wear good running shoes and comfortable clothes on PE days.  They may also bring a water bottle to PE. 


Our Library day is Friday.  Children will keep their library books in their blue numbered library bag.  They will take home their library book and bag every Friday afternoon and return it the following Friday morning.  If your child forgets their book and bag, they will have to wait until the following week to check out a new book.
