North Staff Recognition Student helped another student understand the assignment we were working on and did so without disrupting the entire class. I was very grateful that she took the initiative to help another student and to do it without disturbing our class.
North Staff Recognition Two students did OUTSTANDING work for the journalism concession stand: Student # 1 scrubbed every and all dishes – even when all the other kids went outside to watch the football team win. I told her to go out too – and she wanted to stay and finish the work. Student # 2 worked ¾ of the football game – and was the hardest frontline worker in the concession booth. A few adults after the game commented on what a wonderful worker she was – no breaks, taking care of people’s orders and moving on to the next customer.
North Staff Recognition I wanted to pass along something really cool that happened in my English CTI class yesterday. While the students were working on their bell work, one of my freshman students wasn’t on task. Student, a young man repeating freshman English, turned to the young man and said, “Hey, you really should do your bell work because the points add up quick.” The boy replied, “I don’t have a pencil.” Student could have just let that be that; instead, he gave the young man one of his extra pencils. This may not be a big deal in the scheme of things, but it one of the coolest things I have seen this year in regard to crossing the line.
North Staff Recognition Student stayed after lunch today and picked up trash in the cafeteria. More than that she also spent time talking to students about the importance of taking their trash and not leaving. Not only did she model the appropriate behavior but she also took the time to refocus students on proper behavior.
Because you are so sweet and have gone beyond the call of duty, your colleagues are rewarding you with a sweet treat ! One of your teachers thinks you deserve something sweet today! Have a Happy Day! You are also being given a spare sweet to pass along to one of your students whom you think deserves an award for being kind to others, academic excellence, improving in your class, or maybe just because he or she is having a bad day. You may award the candy bar for any reason you see fit. Here’s a card to give to your student with the candy bar if you would like to include it: From The PBE Team
SOAR CARDS Hocker Grove Eagles are ready to SOAR!!! The SOAR CARDS are meant to be a reminder for adults to give positive feedback when they see students modeling desired behaviors. They are also a tangible reminder for students of a job well done. The act of receiving a SOAR CARD should be reinforcing in itself. Make a really big deal out of the event. Each time a SOAR CARD is given, the teacher should identify the specific behavior defined on the Apache Behavior Matrix. For example, “ Thank you for showing on-task behavior in the hallway by maintaining a quiet voice. ”
