Members of the inaugural “Eagle Club” at Resurrection Catholic Elementary School (RCES) were rewarded for their hard work and treated to a special celebration in December. The Eagle Club reinforces good grades, good behavior and attendance. Each nine weeks students in kindergarten through sixth grade have the opportunity to earn Eagle Club status if they meet criteria for grades, behavior and attendance.
There are two levels: Gold and Blue. For Gold status, students must have a grade of 93 or above in every subject, and for Blue status they must have a grade of 85 or above in every subject. In addition, students must have good behavior reports and no unexcused absences for the nine week period. At the end of each nine week grading period, Eagle Club members are rewarded with a special celebration. “We are so excited about the new Eagle Club at RCES. These types of positive schoolwide behavior and academic programs are proven to help motivate students. Our goal is to inspire our students to be the best they can be,” said Sarah Perkins, Elementary Guidance Counselor and founder of the Eagle Club.
In December, Gold Eagle Club members celebrated with bowling while Blue Eagle Club members had a pizza party at New York Pizza in Pascagoula. They were all treated to an ice cream party when they returned to school. Kindergarten Eagle Club members stayed on campus and enjoyed an ice cream party.
