Pie in the Sky

Monthly Student Character Award


A brief summary : Every month, teachers and staff have an opportunity to nominate up to two (2) students who exemplify the character trait for that month.  A few brief sentences describing how the student demonstrates that month's character trait should be included in the nomination.

How Student is Chosen:  After collecting the nominations, all comments will be presented to Ms. Thompson for judging.  The names will be hidden, so the winning student will be selected strictly from the  comments. The winner's name, along with the comments, will be revealed during the morning announcements at the beginning of the month. 

Prize Given: A certificate will be brought to the student¹s classroom that day, and they will be awarded a $20 Pie in the Sky Pizza Gift Card at the next PTA meeting. All students nominated will receive a Special Recognition Certificate - these will be put in their teacher's mailboxes to be signed and then distributed by their teacher. 

The hope with this new award is to encourage other children to exhibit these positive character traits, too.  (No student will be allowed to win more than once during the school year.)

The Pie in the Sky Teacher/Staff Recognition Award

A brief summary:  Many of us had a teacher or other authority figure that touched our lives in the past.  This award was designed to recognize those special individuals.  

How Teacher/Staff Member is Chosen:  Near the end of each month, the PTA will send out an e-mail to parents asking for votes for Rainbow teachers and staff.   Parents will also be asked to write two or three short sentences as to why they are nominating this person. For those parents who do not receive an e-mail, please send in your nomination and brief reasons to the school in a sealed envelope with “Attn: Pie in the Sky Award” on it.  The deadline for all nominations is the last Friday of the month.  Then the votes will be counted, and the winning teacher/staff member will be announced during morning announcements at the beginning of the month. 

Prize Given:  Teachers will receive a $20 Pie in the Sky Pizza Gift Card at the next Rainbow PTA meeting. (No teacher/staff member will be allowed to win more than once during the school year. One vote per student, please!)

The Pie in the Sky Pizza Restaurant located in the new Target shopping center in Madison has graciously agreed to sponsor these awards by giving out a $20 gift card to each winner every month.  The PTA thanks them for their sponsorship and contributions to our Rainbow community!
