In our Art, Music, and PE classes, students have the opportunity to win raffle tickets for meeting the high expectations of the classroom. They have to really be a S.T.A.R. in order to earn a ticket in each class! Each Related Arts teacher has expectations for their content area. For example, in music S stands for "Sing and perform your best," T stands for "Take care of our instruments and materials," A stands for "Actively listen and participate," and R stands for "Respect yourself and others." When students meet those expectations, they receive their STAR ticket and it goes into the bucket. At the end of the week, Dr. Rogers pulls two raffle tickets from the PE, Art, and Music bucket of names. Students are announced over the intercom so the whole school can cheer for them, and then they get to come to the office to take a dive in the treasure box of prizes! Last week's winners are pictured below with their prize choices. Congratulations to all six of our students, and thank you for doing an amazing job in your Related Arts classes!
Our goal is to give students a consistent set of expectations throughout all of Patrick Henry so they always know how to stay safe, comfortable, and focused on learning. Mrs. Ralphs, Ms. Gonzalez, and Ms. Godfrey have done a fantastic job as our newest staff members, and they are working hard to get our students moving and expressing themselves creatively!
