Students Celebrating Themselves

On Wednesday, the 7th grade students will share their Genius 30 projects. This is an opportunity for these students to showcase their talents, desires and passion. It is a time for them to celebrate themselves. At the same time, the students are nervous about sharing their passion with others and hoping no one makes light of what they enjoy doing.

To support these students please spend some time with your Pride students prior to Wednesday and discuss the importance of showing respect and appreciation for others passions.

The location and the rotation schedule has been emailed, so it is important that everyone follows the schedule.

We are all very excited about these presentations.

Brick House-Next Incentive-December 18th

The Brick House Committee met on Thursday and discussed that another incentive was needed before the semester ended. So the next incentive is a Party/Movie Time. On Friday, December 18th, students who are not on the ICU list as of 1st period December 16th, will be rewarded with a party and a movie in their Pride class. Students on the ICU list will be sent to the cafeteria to complete their assignments.

Encourage the students and remind them each day about this reward.

Please see email sent by Mrs. Brown for all the details.
