The actions I may take include verbal acknowledgement with the students, phone contact with the parents or public acknowledgement in the school. I loved talking with this first group of students about how they ended up in my office - no one fretted or cried and no dreaded phone calls were made. In fact, we celebrated their outstanding displays of character and everyone left with a big smile on their face and a one of a kind "My Principal is Proud of Me!" pencil. I can't wait for the the next student to get a refferal - the Principal's Office may never be the same again!
