It is our desire at Friendship to see students improve in their Christian conduct as well as in their academic areas. Therefore, we have a citizenship code that each teacher evaluates his students on. The categories are:
- Attentiveness—The quality of being observant of one’s surroundings and having the ability of directing the mind to an object or thought. This quality shall be indicated by the student’s awareness of the events in the classroom and his ability to concentrate on a particular subject for a period of time.
- Attitude – The quality of responding and reacting to contrary events and circumstances with a right attitude. This quality shall be indicated both by verbal response as well as body language.
- Obedience – The quality of being willing to comply with or follow the commands, restrictions, wishes, or instructions of the teacher. This quality shall be exhibited by the student’s cheerful compliance to school policies and a submissive attitude to the authority of the classroom teacher.
- Effort – An evaluation of the amount of work a student puts into the class work and his home studies. This quality shall be indicated by on time and correct completion of seatwork, classwork, homework, and projects in relation to a student’s age and academic abilities.
- Responsibility – The quality of being willing to be held answerable or accountable for one’s actions. Also, the quality of being able to be trusted to fulfill a given task without undue supervision. This quality shall be indicated by a student’s understanding of his liability in a given situation and by his ability to perform assigned tasks under his own supervision.
- The citizenship grade will be based on all five characteristics as a whole. Teachers will individually assign a citizenship grade for each quarter which will be reported on the student’s report card. Students may earn a “Citizenship Certificate” at the end of the year if:
○ They have received only 5s and 4s for each quarter, or
○ They received a 3 or 2 in the first semester and showed marked improvement before the end of the year – these students will be evaluated individually by the Citizenship Committee / Student Life Director.
○ A student may not receive a Citizenship Award if they have received multiple demerits/discipline notices outside of class such as consistently being late to school or receiving detentions/suspensions for non-class related issues. These students will be evaluated individually by the Citizenship Committee / Student Life Director.
- These grades shall be based on the following scale:
○ 5 — Consistently demonstrates all 5 characteristics
○ 4 — Consistently demonstrates 4 characteristics
○ 3 — Consistently demonstrates 3 characteristics
○ 2 — Consistently demonstrates 2 characteristics
○ 1 — Consistently demonstrates 1 characteristics
