It was amazing to see all of the neat tricks and possibilities jump roping. At the end of the assembly, several students and teachers also got involved. So parents if a jump rope is now on your child's shopping list, you know why. Remember to stay active.

Be A Leader

Park View Elementary News - Wed, 08/30/2017 - 9:56pm

Park View Elementary is rolling out a new theme this year. BE A LEADER! We believe that every student attending Park View is a leader. We are dedicating our efforts to help each student exhibit leadership traits using the seven habits. 

Let’s quickly explore the seven habits!

  • Habit 1: Be Proactive. You're in Charge: Success doesn’t just come and find you, you have to go out and get it. 
  • Habit 2: Begin with the End in Mind. Have a Plan: Know what you want before you do it. 
  • Habit 3: Put First Things First. Work First, Then Play: Do it now. Sometimes ‘later’ becomes ‘never’.
  • Habit 4: Think Win-Win. Everyone Can Win: People who win are those that turn their cant’s into cans, and their dreams into plans.
  • Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood. Listen Before You Talk: Before you act, LISTEN. Before you react, THINK. Before you spend, EARN. Before you criticize, WAIT. Before you quit, TRY. 
  • Habit 6: Synergize. Together Is Better: Alone we are smart. Together we are brilliant. 
  • Habit 7: Sharpen The Saw. Balance Feels Best: Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live. 

We encourage you as parents, guardians, and relatives to use the language of the seven habits at home and in your day to day activities. It’s easy! Instead of saying, “Jonny, thank you for putting your dishes in the sink.” Change your language to, “Jonny, thank you for being proactive and putting your dishes in the sink!”

We are confident that these habits will empower our students to be positive, responsible, and more effective in their everyday life! If you have any questions, feel free to ask your child’s teacher. 

Remember, BE A LEADER!

For the Strength of the Pack

Barnett Elementary News - Tue, 08/29/2017 - 10:51am

Along with brag notes this year students can also earn points for their Bulldog Pack! Last week every student spun the Pack Picking Wheel and was put into either the Blue, Red, Yellow, or Green Pack so each pack is made up of different teachers, different staff members, and students from all different grade levels. When a student is making good choices and shining as a leader in our school they may be awarded a point for their pack. The pack with the most points at the end of the term earns a Pack Dance Party. The packs spent some time together Friday afternoon creating a pack name and cheer, and getting to know each other through some team building activities.
