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” or more than 2 “S” grades per term, the student may not qualify to attend the corresponding 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.
Students who receive an average of 5 O's (Outstanding) per term without any N's (Needs Improvement) as their Citizenship Grades will be able to attend. Teachers have the final approval on students attending. Qualifying lists will be posted a week before the party and updated as we get closer to each date.
Students will vote on where they would like to go for our parties this year. Some of our options may include;
The Jump Zone
USU Women's Basketball game
The Fun Park
North Campus Students have voted to go to the JumpZone on January 11th, and to the Fun Park on May 23rd. More information will be given as the dates approach.
