Aztecs of the Year
Each May teachers nominate six seniors, three boys and three girls, for Aztec of the Year. These students have excellent academic achievement, outstanding citizenship, and have contributed greatly to La Quinta through participating in athletics, activities and school service. Each nominee writes an essay about why he/she should be the Aztec of the Year. Teachers read the essays and vote for one boy and one girl for Aztec of the Year.
Perfect Attendance Award
Each spring, during our senior awards night, all students who have had four years of perfect attendance are recognized and receive a plaque.
Students who earn a 3.5 or higher academic point average for three semesters receive a LQ academic letter. In subsequent semesters of 3.5 or higher APA these students receive a bar to put on their LQ letter. These awards are presented to students at an Academic Awards Luncheon in the fall and spring of each school year. The luncheon is held during the school day in the 200 lycuem. Family members and friends of award recipients are welcome to attend the luncheon. Click the above link for more information on criteria to receive an Academic award.
Aztecs of the Month
Staff members nominate students in grades nine through twelve to be considered for Aztec of the Month. The Aztec of the Month committee, composed of an administrator, teachers, classified staff, and students, selects two students each month from the nominations. Aztecs of the Month are selected for academic excellence, good citizenship, school involvement, and community and school service.
