Plaques for Kids

Honoring Students with a Plaque

by Presenta Plaque | on Oct 26, 2016 | No Comments

Today our students are pulled in a variety of different directions.  They are bogged down with school lessons, homework and even extracurricular activities.  All of these things combined help students to get into the schools of their choice and show that they are well-rounded.  We should recognize these achievements with a plaque and as parents show them off as they happen.

Good grades are expected when you are in school, but that doesn’t mean that they don’t take work to achieve.  For some students those good grades take hours of discipline and dedication to the schoolwork to get in the school’s good graces.  When those good test scores come in or good report cards, they should be celebrated and recognized.  Why not display it an elegant manner.  Our Presenta Plaque kits are the perfect way to display those perfect scores.  You can place them up in your home in a prominent location.  The act shows not only that you are proud of the achievement but it can also serve as motivation for the student as well.

A lot of our students are involved with extracurricular activities such as athletics or academic clubs.  While they are involved in those activities, there will be events you want to preserve and remember.  Maybe it’s a photo taken after scoring the winning point.  Perhaps it is the program from a convention they attended with an academic team.  These memories can all be perfectly framed in one of our plaque kits.  They serve as a permanent reminder of that time and something that can stimulate not only conversation but memories of that occasion.

Finally what about the acceptance letter to the university or college?  All of this work ultimately goes towards that goal.  The dream college your child has worked towards.  The first step they are taking towards adulthood.  Show it off, frame the letter and let the world see that accomplishment on paper.  Be proud of the hard work that went into it and the end result because of it.

Recently the Rotary Club of Castle Rock in Castle Rock, Colorado recognized one of these student achievers.  Alec  Greven was recently named the “Rotary Student of the Month” for the Rotary Club of Castle Rock.  The group used a Presenta Plaque kit to present him with an award recognizing this honor.   Alec was presented the award during the group’s monthly meeting by Castle View High School principal, Rex Corr and the Rotary’s president, Jerry Lionetti.  The award was presented in front of family and friends and it being placed inside a Presenta Plaque made it feel more substantial than just being handed a certificate.  It is something this student will remember and display with pride and will be something he can pull out in the future to look at and be reminded of.

Know your students work hard.  Their hard work should be recognized where possible.  Our kits help you do so with ease.  Maybe the next time you want to remind someone of their special achievement check out one of our plaque kits to do so.

Get Your Kids Back to School on the Right Foot

School is back in session and every parent wants to make sure their kids begin and stay on the right track. Often, it can be difficult to keep kids interested in school. No parent wants to receive that dreaded phone call from a teacher or principal letting them know their child is under-performing. But with a little positive reinforcement at home and some support from teachers, you and your son or daughter will be ready to begin a great year.

 

Meet their teacher

 

Most teachers are excited to have parents who are just as involved and concerned with their students’ education as they are. Get to know your child’s teacher. If there is an open house or meet the teacher night you can attend, by all means. It is great to put a face to the person who spends as much time with your child as you. It is also important to establish a relationship so you are comfortable with contacting them for any concerns later in the year.

 

Ask about their day

 

Many parents tend to get caught up with their own everyday tasks and often forget to ask kids about their own day. Sometimes asking is more than enough for students. This is the perfect opportunity to gauge any frustrations or issues your student might be going through. It will be much easier later in the year to determine if your student is on a good track if you make it a habit of asking them how things are going.

 

Give them incentives

 

This is a part of rewarding that often becomes blurry for parents. It can be difficult to distinguish when you are bribing and when you are giving proper incentives. The best way to remember this is to think of positives and negatives. Incentives should be a reward to continue good behavior. An incentive should serve as more of a motivation rather than a method of persuasion such as a bribe would serve.

 

Reward them

 

Even the simplest of rewards can mean a lot to a student who’s worked hard all year. While verbal praise can be of great motivation through busy and stressful times at school, a reward such as a certificate or a plaque can be the perfect way to give them something so show for it at the end of the year.

 

Give your hardworking student a plaque to remind them all their hard work will pay off soon! Order a plaque for your children today!
