Young Miners

Miners logoAt the Creede School District, we strive to continually recognize outstanding Creede Miner behavior. Please feel free to nominate a current Creede Miner student to a Creede School District staff member when you notice them demonstrating some of these outstanding behaviors.


* The Holy Moses Award

A Legendary quote made by Nicolas Creede upon discovery of a vast and rich silver vein. This award recognizes any upstanding behavior demonstrated by our students.


* The Major Minor Award

This award recognizes selflessness and random acts of kindness towards others.


* The Creede Community Contributor 

This is awarded to students that have gone out of their way to help their fellow citizens or community.

During Remote Learning and even over summer break, we had students being recognized for outstanding efforts! 

Way to go Miners; we are SO proud of you!

4/7/20: Kala is receiving this award for helping people out during a time of need. She is using her acquired automotive mechanics knowledge and skills to fix an elderly neighbor's vehicle. 

4/23/20: Congratulation Klara on your Major Miner Award!  Mrs. Johnson recognized her for helping her sister, Ava, with her online studies. Ava was really excited and appreciative of this fact when she told Mrs. Johnson, "My sister is an amazing teacher." 

7/16/20: Tyler is receiving this “Major Minor” award for exemplary behavior earlier this week. At STEM camp, his sister left her lunchbox unzipped and a chipmunk stole her sandwich. Tyler was immediately halving his lunch to share before a replacement lunch could even be whipped together. The team was so impressed with him and we are proud to celebrate this act of kindness! 

7/30/20: Shelby is being recognized for personally assembling, counting, and readying the face shields for the CSD! Shelby also assists her mom at Silver Thread Public Health by wiping down and sanitizing door handles at the health clinic to keep workers and community members safe. She is passionate about fighting COVID and keeping people healthy! 

February – March 2020: Being upstanding is outstanding! These Elementary students, Jack, Levi, Adalaide and Maren, were recognized by their staff and peers for standing up when they saw negative actions.  They were awarded certificates and they got to share lunch with Principal Goss!
