Distinguished Honor Roll Award and Honor Roll Award for Grades 3-5: Honor roll will be determined at the end of the school year. Academic grades on the final report card will be converted into a points-based system weighted according to instructional time allocated for each subject. Points will be accumulated throughout the year and calculated after the final grades are submitted. Academic performance based on meeting grade level expectations (M) and consistently high effort (4) will likely lead to honor roll eligibility. Read more...

Effort Roll: This award is given to students in Grades 3-5. The goal of this award is to recognize the students in each classroom who consistently demonstrate high effort. The effort grades in all subjects, for all trimesters are tallied and totaled. In each homeroom class the students with the top two effort "totals" will qualify. Students who have qualified for the honor roll, will not be included in the effort roll, as their honor roll status already includes recognition of their fine effort throughout the year.

The Eagle Way Award: This award is given to students in Grades 1-5. One student in each classroom who has consistently exemplified the ideals of The Eagle Way will receive this award.

Most Improved Award: This award is given to students in Grades 1-5. One student who has demonstrated outstanding effort and improvement during the year will receive this award.

Carlos de la Garza Evia Quiroga Memorial Award: This award is given to the 9th grade student that displays the finest qualities of humanitarianism, friendship, cooperation, service, and courtesy, in addition to being a good student.

Citizenship Award: School is a place of learning. Yet a school can become more than just a place of learning, it can become a community; a place where students offer their energy, their talents and their time to create a special place. The Recipient has contributed to making Grade Level such a community. He/She shares their time to organize social events. He/She lends a hand in activities that help others. Without the contributions of such citizens we would reduce ASFM to just a school.

Community Service Award: Community Service is an important part of our school. Students are required to complete 100 hours to graduate from Bach or High School, but more than a requirement it is a moral obligation to help the less fortunate. Each year the Community Service Coordinator presents awards to several students for their dedication and commitment to the program.

Valedictorian and Salutatorian: The graduating student who receives the highest cumulative average over three (3) years will be recognized at the graduation ceremony as the Valedictorian. The graduating student with the second highest cumulative average will be recognized as the Salutatorian. These are the two most prestigious honors offered at ASFM.
