- teaches students to be responsible for their own behavior
- provides supervision for students before and after school, in the hallways, and in the lunchroom

“I Got Caught”
To reward great behavior Lawton Chiles has the “I Got Caught” Program.
Students getting caught doing exemplary behavior is given an “I Got Caught” Sticker. This earns them points that can be used for prizes or “Lunch With Friends”. Every Monday on the Morning News an “I Got Caught” slip is drawn for K-2 and for 3-5. The K-2 student whose name is drawn receives a baby Cheetah and a 3-5 student receives a $10 gift certificate.
Every month two students in each classroom receive the Governor’s Award. On the first Wednesday of the month, Mrs. Black presents these exemplary students the award on the Morning News Show. A group picture is on display in the main hallway.
Every grade level has its own weekly awards:
Kindergarten -Super Kid
First Grade – Shining Star
Second Grade – Top Dog
Third Grade – “Sun”sational Student
Fourth Grade – Fantastic Fourth Grader
Fifth Grade – Lawton Leader and County Wide - Citizen of the Month
