Positive Student Recognitions

Stone Mountain is committed to recognizing students exemplifying character, strong work habits, positive actions, and kindness. To celebrate our students in the moment and positive reinforce these qualities, we use Positive Office Referrals and Cub Character tickets. Students can earn these as recognition from ANY SME STAFF member at ANY TIME.

Our key principles are Be Safe, Be Kind, Be Responsible, Be Respectful, BE CUBS! By focusing on these elements of cub character we are collectivity growing our positivity, resiliency, character, academics, and commitment to excellence. 


Positive Office Referrals:
Positive Office Referrals are a way for a staff member to highlight a very specific action or a series of actions at school that they feel need to be recognized by Mrs. Franci and Mrs. Kruse in the front office. It is important that students feel the front office is a positive place to be and for those moments of recognition to happen and be celebrated. Positive Office Referrals can be given at any time by any staff member and it follows with a trip to the office to be recognized, an additional signed note from Mrs. Franci or Mrs. Kruse, a #BeKind Energy pin, and a picture taken. There is no limit to how many times a student can receive a Positive Office Referral. 



Recognition that happens in the moment provides timely feedback that is more positive and impactful on student behavior!

Cub Character Tickets
Cub Character tickets are a way to catch students doing the right thing, something to give back to their community, taking care of other students/staff, and overall demonstrating positive behaviors. These tickets have two parts!

Part 1: Cub Character - goes home that day to parents to highlight the positive behavior observed at school!

Part 2: Cub Cash - the other part of the ticket goes into the grade level bucket at school that day!

Every Friday, after announcements, multiple students per grade with Cub Cash in the buckets will be pulled and given the opportunity to spin the prize wheel!
