Perfect Attendance

Students who have perfect attendance for each quarter and have never been on the habitually tardy list will receive special recognition.


Students who do a specific task well or perform well in some way will receive a “Certificate” which can be redeemed for prizes. This card is good for one time only. Certificate days are held approximately twice a month when students may exchange their certificate for a healthy treat.

Student of the Month

Each month four (4) students are recognized as “Students of the Month”. Their pictures may be seen in the Turlock Journal.

Top Tiger

Each quarter, staff members nominate students who do a good job and are helpful in class and/or on campus. These students are eligible for a Top Tiger card that can be used all year on certificate days. Other rewards may include interdisciplinary team awards, assemblies and the yearbook party.

Honor Roll

We are very proud of students who achieve grades which place them in the top 20% of their class. Each quarter students are recognized for academic achievement. Those students who have earned a grade point average of 3.0 or above with no F's will have their names submitted to the Turlock Journal for publication. Those students who have a grade point average of 3.5 or better qualify for the “Principal’s Honor Roll” and receive an Honor Roll Certificate.

Outstanding Citizenship

All the staff at TJHS appreciates outstanding citizenship. Each quarter, students who receive five “O’s” (O = outstanding) for citizenship on their report card will receive a special treat. 

8th Grade Awards
