    Dear Parents,

    Welcome to another great start this school year.  It is going to be amazing!

    This school year we are making a slight change on recognizing students for their work and citizenship. We are no longer going to have Otter Tags for academics and specialist.

    Our staff has created Otter PAWS (Positively Affecting our World).  All staff at Twin Lakes will have Otter PAW tickets that are printed on tan cardstock paper (see example below).  Our staff will be  passing out these tickets to students that show kindness, leadership, respect, Otter Pride, honesty, good work habits, citizenship, sportsmanship, responsibility, compassion, integrity, and cooperation, just to name a few. The Otter PAW can come from any staff member in the building.

    Students that receive an Otter PAW will bring home the PAW part of the ticket and the other piece will go into a grade level bucket for a weekly drawing to be recognized on the WTLN news, along with coming to my office for recognition and a pencil.

    Grade level teams will also be asked to display in their hallway academic success stories, or actual work of students, that meet their guidelines or expectations.  This will be a visual for students to see and take pride in.

    I will still be asking staff to send me students that deserve a principal card from me as another form of recognition.  This has always been a student favorite to visit with me on an accomplishment that was recognized by their teacher or specialist and to get a personalized principal card to bring home.

     Mr. Collins
