STRIVE ASSEMBLY

Here are the latest photos taken of our Strive Assembly where we celebrate the great efforts made by students and encourage everyone to participate in upcoming Santiago events. Our students had a wonderful time listening to the speeches and then were introduced to our El Modena High School guests for the day. Students participated in skits, and contests and we honored those students who made Gold, Silver and Bronze Strive. What a great STRIVE Assembly!

 

STRIVE PROGRAM

The STRIVE Program serves to motivate and reward academic achievement. It is our goal to encourage students to strive to achieve as high of grades as they are capable of earning.

S = Success
T = Teamwork
R = Responsibility
I = Integrity
V = Values
E = Effort

There are rewards for all students who earn a 2.0 Grade Point Average and have no N's or U's in citizenship. Three levels of achievement are honored. Each level gives the student a "card" containing codes for each reward earned. Each card is valid for one trimester only. Students with more than four dress code violations and/or any "D's", "F's", "N's" or "U's" will not be eligible for STRIVE rewards. The three levels and their respective rewards are as follows:
