Special to The Post-Searchlight
In an effort to reward excellence in academics and attendance, Bainbridge High School established the CATS (Community Achievement Team for Success) Student Incentive Program.
The purposes of CATS are to promote excellence through the principles of student rewards and incentives and to foster active community involvement with students, parents, teachers, and businesses as partners in attaining educational excellence at BHS. The Decatur County Schools Foundation is an important partner and contributor in this effort. Among the components of the program are AP Bearcats of Distinction, Honor Rolls, Outstanding Bearcats, Gold Cards, and Purple Cards.
Students who qualified for the Principal’s Honor, Gold Cards, and Purple Cards for last semester were recently presented CATS Program T-shirts compliments of the Decatur County Schools Foundation. The Principal’s Honor Roll consists of students earning no grade less than 95.
Gold Cards are given to students who have no more than two absences in any class and no grade less than 90. Purple Cards are given to students who have no more than one absence in any class and no grade less than 80.
