BSSD Terrific Kids/Students of the Month: October

BIG SKY – As part of its Student of the Month/Terrific Kids of the Month program, the Big Sky School District honored four students in October for their ability to show respect to classmates and teachers.

Teachers choose two “terrific kids” from kindergarten through fifth grades and two “students of the month” in middle and high school, recognizing them based on a different theme every month.

An announcement is made over the intercom, and the students are called into the office to be congratulated. In addition, the k-5 honorees are rewarded with a burger from The Corral, and the chosen middle and high school students get pizza from Blue Moon Bakery.
