Information For Pathfinder Families / September 26th

----------------------------------------------------------

Leadership Social / Quality Students

Each month our classes nominate one of their peers to be the monthly Quality Student. This student is someone who is representing the 7 Habits of Happy Kids and being a leader throughout our school. Our Quality Students are then invited to a Leadership Social where we celebrate each student and learn how leadership is shown within our community. This month we were honored to have Pathfinder parent and Fox Four News Anchor Christel Bell join during our social. Mrs. Bell gave us an inside look at the Fox Four News studio and the teamwork it took to put on a newscast. She also left the students with three important things to remember:


  • Be confident when you speak
  • Find the good in situations you are presented
  • Teamwork is important to accomplish any task

Pathfinder Resource Checklist

Hello Pirate Families! At the beginning and middle of each school year, we ask parents and guardians to fill out our Resource Checklist on paper. This year we are asking you to complete the Resource Checklist electronically using this form. This brief questionnaire is your School Social Worker's first and primary way to help you access support services. It also lets us know if you are interested in giving back to your school community. Please do not hesitate to contact your School Social Worker if you have any questions.
