Evergreen Avenue School Celebrates Good Behavior
This year Evergreen Avenue School is implementing a new school-wide program to recognize the many students who display appropriate school conduct. The program was launched with a lively kick off assembly where 4th and 5th graders dramatized special skits designed to show students what behaviors are expected at school.
During the kickoff, students were told about the new program that promoted zero discipline points and used the theme, “My Hero, Zero”. Students were excited about the rewards that were planned for those who demonstrated positive behavior throughout the month, including daily playground champion recognition and monthly celebrations. At the end of the month, eligible students were invited to participate in a school-wide Friday Fun activity.
Students who demonstrated good behavior through the month of September were able to enjoy a late Tuesday afternoon of fun and delight (It rained Friday). There were moon bounces, carnival games, and Italian ice. For some, it was their first time ever jumping in a moon bounce. What a pleasant memory to carry into their adulthood.
Teachers have a special celebration scheduled at the end of each month for students who exhibit positive behavior. Students look forward to the surprise celebrations and work towards it daily.
