Hi NancyAnne,
This is an on-going discussion at my school, and I know, at many other schools. Being recognized for being respectful and responsible is a wonderful thing - and adds to kids' sense of significance. I think you will find that a trinket/prize will not be missed. You are wise to think about how to slowly make changes.

Maybe, think about building a relationship with those being recognized - a simple 1-1 conversation about their contribution to the school would help you get to know them better. Depending on the size of your school, maybe a visit to their morning meetings - once every few weeks would do it - to hear about the respectful and responsible things they are doing. Let them self-report instead of having the teacher nominate them.
Would love to hear what you decide to do.
