Scott Lister, Assistant Principal 
NOTE FROM YOUR ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL MR. LISTER

We are focusing students on being accountable for their behavior on the school buses.  Announcements will highlight examples of what it means to be accountable:  following bus driver directions the first time given, using appropriate voice levels on the bus, etc., and students will receive bus awards for showing good accountability on the school buses.

Counselors Corner:

So many of our children here at Glen Arden are truly “RAMS Stars”!  Have you ever wondered what that means?  PBIS is a framework that stands for Positive, Behavior, Intervention, and Supports. You will notice signs throughout the school that identify expectations for students in each area; Hallways, classrooms, bathrooms, cafeteria, playground, bus and everywhere.  Here’s some information that may help clarify how this works to provide expectations for a positive environment for our students:

What is PBIS?  Proactive prevention-oriented framework used to encourage and reward success for all students in academics and character growth

Positive, Behavior, Intervention and Supports.  

Our focus is on catching students meeting expectations and rewarding the positive behavior, rather than focusing on the negative.  RAMS (Respectful, Accountable, Mindful, and Safe) stars are recognized with special activities throughout the year.  

Here’s the “classroom” PBIS expectations:

From October 1 through October 31, diners can join the fight against breast cancer and help P.F. Chang’s reach its goal of donating $100,000 to the American Cancer Society by triggering a $1 donation via the following actions:

Purchase of the Jicama Street Tacos at any U.S. P.F. Chang’s location.
Share a picture in front of P.F. Chang’s iconic Warrior Horse(s) on Twitter or Instagram with #PFChangsPink, or upload a photo directly on the tab on the P.F. Chang’s Facebook page or at pfchangs.com/pfchangspink. Each shared picture will become part of a digital photo mosaic on pfchangs.com/pfchangspink, signifying someone who has a horse in the race against breast cancer.
 
The photos will come together to create a digital mosaic of a P.F. Chang’s Warrior Horse—a symbol of strength and protection for those whose lives have been impacted by breast cancer. Diners can visit pfchangs.com/pfchangspink to find and share their personal photo.
