CLAW stands for Citizenship, Leadership, Attitude, and Work Ethic. The award recognize students who demonstrate these qualities both within and without the classroom. Each month Sims teachers nominate the students they feel have earned the award by demonstrating the qualities it honors. In the nomination forms they submit about the students, the teachers include comments about the qualities the students possess that qualify them for the award. These are the comments the teachers made about September’s CLAW Award winners:
