Student Awards & Recognition
Hickory students are encouraged to set high academic goals for themselves. Together with their teachers and parents, they review and discuss their specific grade level standards and expectations. Students are recognized by their individual teachers throughout the school year for their academic achievements. Outstanding Student Recognition Awards, honoring individual talents, not limited to academics, are part of the Monday morning assembly.
The Featured Class of the Week is announced at the weekly Flag assemblies. The featured Class of the Week is rewarded with the following:
- Early entrance to the cafeteria and a special designated eating area for each lunch.
- Food certificates from sponsoring merchants
- Special seating at Flag Assemby
Five times a year a student is selected from each classroom for their HOUND positive behavior.
