End of the Year

 

Every Nine Weeks Award will have a corresponding End of the Year Award as well. Awards based on grades or conduct will be based on the End of the Year average only in grades 1-5. Because Kinder does not have an End of the Year average, students must have earned the award each nine weeks to be eligible for their End of the Year awards.
