School Culture and Climate

Courteous Cougars

Students are recognized for positive behaviors throughout the week. A drawing is held once a week for all slips collected and the winner receives a prize from the office on Wednesday afternoons.

Proud Principal Fridays

Students are recognized by staff for acts of kindness and showing improvement in academics or behavior. They visit the principal on Fridays to be congratulated for their efforts.

Honor Roll

Honor Roll is a special accommodation awarded to students who reach certain academic goals throughout the year. You must be in grades 4-6 to be eligible for the program.

  • Gold Honor Roll is awarded to students who receive all A's on their report card and demonstrate satisfactory citizenship (no N's or U's).
  • Silver Honor Roll is awarded to students who receive all A's & B's on their report card and no N's or U's.

Report cards are given out each trimester, so students have three opportunities over the course of the school year to reach Honor Roll.

Perfect Attendance

Students in kindergarten through 6th grade who do not miss a single day of school for any reason will earn a Perfect Attendance Award.

PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention Support)

Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS), s a schoolwide system that works to promote positive behaviors and redirect negative behaviors through teaching. Within a safe and nurturing environment, staff uses consistent goals and simple language / terms, while understanding where each student is in the learning process.

Besides our focus that kindness matters and our school motto of “Cougars Count on Each Other,” our three main Cadwallader rules are to be safe, be respectful, and be responsible.
