Operation School Bell®
Student Recognition

Operation School Bell Academic All Stars recognizes students who are chosen by their teachers for achievements in academics, behavior, attendance and other important areas. It’s widely known that children are more likely to repeat behaviors that earn praise and positive reinforcement. The goal of Academic All Stars is to encourage students in grades K-5 to continue on a path to educational success.

Families are invited to celebrate with the students at awards ceremonies held at four elementary schools in Minneapolis and St. Paul.

Parents and students are overwhelmingly positive about the program and teachers observe their students’ increased efforts to earn recognition.

I like that I am going to have a picture of my son being his best.

Families were very proud of their child being recognized and shared that they loved the ceremony. They felt it was validation of the work their child has been doing.
