Mount Zion's Citizenship Program
The Mount Zion Christian Schools (MZCS) Citizenship Program is set up to reward and recognize students for acting in a respectful and responsible manner, Good Citizens of Mount Zion.
Elementary CitizenshipIn the elementary grades the program is used only as a tool for communication with home and data collection for patterns. It is in the elementary grades that the teachers start teaching and preparing the children to become good citizens within our school, at home and within our communities.
Middle School CitizenshipIn the middle and high schools, students start each grading unit with a three in each category and move up or down based on performance. Advisors or homeroom teachers work with students to have a plan for growth in this area of personal development. Students reaching different levels of citizenship receive recognition of different forms based on grade level.
Forms of Recognition:In the Middle School, students earn team and classroom privileges based on ranking in academic, Bible and art classes. For instance, A Good Citizen may listen to Christian music through their music device during times permitted by the teacher. A Model Citizen in five classes can not only listen to music, but they also are given the privilege of using the student lounge during recess or teacher approved times. There may be dress down days permitted as well, depending on how many classes the student is a Model Citizen in.
High School CitizenshipIn our High School, students get an overall rating of citizenship that is based on their classes and competitive sports. If a student reaches Good Citizen, they may have the privilege of using the student lounge and listen to music when permitted by the teachers. When a student reaches Model Citizen, they will have the ability to run for school leadership positions.
