GOLDEN PAW AWARDS
Garden Grove is proud of the weekly classroom awards earned by students that exemplify the philosophy of Garden Grove IMPACT Academy. Student recipients are eligible for a monthly drawing to earn "Time with the Principal" and a "Golden Paw Spirit Stick".Students who demonstrate exemplar behavior in one of 4 categories weekly are able to earn a Golden Paw Award – Teachers will give tickets weekly, and students come to the office and put their ticket in the appropriate container.
Every month one recipient from each of the four categories is randomly chosen to spend time with the Principal and they receive the Golden Paw Spirit Stick and their name on the web page.
