Encouragement is central to the promotion of responsible and respectful behavior. Laval Junior Academy strives to recognize student success in a way that builds self-esteem and school pride. We want our students to develop high standards of self-discipline and internalize the values embraced by our community. At the same time we want to acknowledge our students’ contribution in building a good school. Throughout the school year we value and recognize our students’ academic achievements, citizenship, social responsibility and accomplishments.
Praise and Positive Feedback is given by adults in the school community through such things as communication with parents, the school webpage, recognition in the classroom, school announcements, student assemblies and the end of year awards ceremony. In addition, individual classroom teachers may also use a management system that recognizes and rewards positive behaviors.
