Great Ideas: Principal’s Prize Patrol

Principal’s Prize Patrol

Teachers may nominate any class for a visit from the Prize Patrol. Criteria include reverence in church, classroom behavior, cafeteria manners, self-discipline skills, respect for others, and acts of kindness. “The Prize Patrol is coming,” is announced over the PA for several days before a surprise visit from the principal and PTO officers. The teacher is presented with flowers; a Prize Patrol banner is placed on the door for a month of recognition; and the class name is engraved on a plaque. Cake and punch conclude each celebration.
