BIG SKY – Big Sky School District honored four students for their accountability this May as part of its Student of the Month/Terrific Kids of the Month program.

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 middle and high school students chosen get pizza from Blue Moon Bakery.
