Recognizing achievement in attendance, academics and attitude

RUSHVILLE — Rushville Consolidated High School has much to be proud of and as a result, the following programs seek to recognize those who put forth their best effort.

Class Ring Program

Two sophomore students receive class rings donated from Jostens, Inc. These students are nominated by teachers for their improvement in their academic progress, leadership and citizenship from their freshman to sophomore year. Two names are then drawn to receive these free class rings.

Perfect Attendance Lunch

Attendance is a major component for academic success. In order to receive a perfect attendance award, a student may not miss any class time during the school year. For example, if a student is absent during one class block to go to the dentist or doctor, he/she will not qualify for perfect attendance. In accordance with state guidelines, school activities, field trips, serving as a page in the legislature, and working the election polls are not considered absences from school.

Honor Roll Ice-Cream Recognition

Good grades can be truly sweet! Each student included on the RCHS Honor Roll will be eligible to receive a complimentary ice-cream during a lunch.  These ice-cream recognitions will occur after each nine-week honor roll.

Scholar Athlete of the Month

The RCHS Athletic Department presents a medal to a student each month to recognize excellence in both academics and athletics.  (Corporate Sponsors are certainly welcome and encouraged to present the medal to the student at a football game, basketball game, etc)

VIP Breakfast

Students are nominated by staff to be recognized based on attendance, academics, and or attitude.  These students and their parents are invited to the breakfast via a letter home (including RSVP).  This breakfast occurs at the end of the school year.

Lion Pride Incentive Cards (“Caught you being good”)

Students will receive cards from any staff member for doing something good, displaying school pride, helping others, rewards, etc. Students then may drop cards in the “Lion Pride Box” in the office. Drawings will take place 2 times a grading period and names drawn will win prizes such as cafeteria desserts/specials, movie passes, restaurant discounts/freebies, t-shirts, free admissions/specials at athletic events or other school functions, and/or other special rewards. Staff members may pass these cards out at their discretion.
