Renaissance Program

  • Las Colinas's Renaissance Program rewards sixth through eighth grade students who attain or improve academic standards.  Renaissance is more than just another academic program. It is a process, a change in attitude, an entirely new way of thinking that brings academic achievement to the forefront in schools. It helps students experience the true joy of learning and increases the involvement of parents and businesses. Renaissance students are periodically rewarded with special activities and treats.

    At Las Colinas, the criteria for being a Renaissance student are as follows:

    Honor Roll:
    3.5 or above GPA (7/8th Grade)
    3.5 or above GPA (6th Grade)

    Most Improved: Improved GPA over the previous reporting period by 0.5 and higher than a 2.0 GPA; No "U’s" on report card.  Only for the 2nd, and 3rd reporting periods.

    GPA's will be calculated at the end of each quarter and students will be recognized shortly afterwards.
     
    Some of the rewards/privileges Renaissance students receive throughout the school year are:

    • Renaissance T-shirt
    • Pizza Lunch
    • Gift Certificates to Local Restaurants
    • Pencils
    • Keychains
