Student Recognition

Fanning Falcons are FANTASTIC!

At Fanning, we regularly celebrate our students for positive behavior and academics. Below are a number of ways.


  • Fantastic Falcons Spirit Cards are given by ALL staff to students who are “caught” being Respectful, Responsible or Safe at school. Spirit Cards are turned in to the bucket in the Media Center for prize drawings.


  • The principal randomly pulls 15 spirit cards and announces the names of these students to come to office to receive prizes.
  • The principal announces the class who has highest percentage of students wearing Fanning shirts (or a shirt displaying school colors) on School Spirit Fridays and delivers the Spirit Wear trophy to that class for the week.


  • Popsicles with the Principal – Students who have received multiple Fantastic Falcon Spirit Cards are invited to lunch with the principal and given popsicles.
  • The grade level with highest number of spirit cards turned in gets an extra 10 minutes of lunchtime or recess.
  • At our Flag Ceremony, teachers recognize 2-3 students in each class who exemplify the Character Trait we focused on for that month. These are presented as the “Principal’s Award for Character.”


  • At the end of each trimester, students in grades 4-6 are recognized for academic performance (Honor Roll and Honorable Mention) and responsibility (Citizenship). We hold these awards ceremonies in the media center by grade level, and we send home notices to let parents know to come to the ceremony.


  • As the culmination of their academic careers at Fanning, on the last day of school 6th grade students attend an award ceremony where top 6th graders are presented with the national “Presidential Award.”
  • The student with the MOST Fantastic Falcon cards at the end of the year gets to be “Principal for the Day!” and spend the afternoon shadowing Mrs. Stevens!
