TECS offers a Citizenship Party twice per year to reward middle school students who are good citizens of the school. Citizenship marks are determined by meeting classroom and school expectations of attendance, dress code, respect, a good attitude, and work completion.
Participating in activities such as citizenship parties is a privilege, not a right. Not meeting expectations will result in a loss of privileges. Also, citizenship grades in the eighth may affect a student’s eligibility for athletics, student council, club membership, etc. in high school.
The mid-year Citizenship Party is based on citizenship grades for terms 1-3. The end-of-year party is based on citizenship grades for terms 4-6. If a student has an “N” (Needs Improvement) or more than 2 “S” (Satisfactory) grades per term, the student may not qualify to attend the corresponding party. Teachers have the final approval on students attending. Students who sluff a class will be given an "N" citizenship grade for that term in the class they sluffed. Qualifying lists will be posted in the Counseling Office a few days before the party.
TECS recognizes that some students may have physical and emotional conditions which make it more difficult for them to meet the expectations required to earn the citizenship party. If so, please meet with your student's teacher, the school counselor, or an administrator to design a custom plan for your student to show significant improvement in his/her behavior which would warrant earning the party.
