Bus Passenger of the Month

Stone Mountain is committed to recognizing students who meet the criteria of going above and beyond when it comes to being a positive member of our school. To celebrate these students, we have a Bus Passenger of the Month.

The Bus Passenger of the Month must be a diligent student, complete his/her assignments on time; show a strong effort to learn subjects to the best of their ability; be prepared for class; and have good classroom participation. The Bus Passenger of the Month demonstrates excellent behavior in and out of the classroom and is respectful to both peers and teachers. The Bus Passenger of the Month displays excellent citizenship by working together with classmates with a cooperative attitude and exhibits positive behavior. Lastly, The Bus Passenger of the Month demonstrates exemplar character through his/her compassion, honesty, trustworthiness, responsibility, optimism, and loyalty by helping to create a positive school environment.

Each month, classroom and specials teachers will choose one boy and one girl that meet the above criteria. The Bus Passenger of the Month will be recognized at our whole school assembly at the end of each month. The Bus Passenger of the Month is a prestigious award!
