Frost Middle School Celebrations and Events
Northridge Academy High School
Cinco de Mayo and Attendance Recognition at Jane Addams High School
In celebration of Cinco de Mayo Jane Addams High School distributed conchas (a traditional Mexican sweet bread) to its students and staff during morning check in. During lunch, students enjoyed breaking piñatas and eating their treats and enjoying the festivities. We also took time to recognize our students’ efforts in school attendance by giving out gift bags and treats to those with excellent and proficient attendance. Students not in that category still received a treat for being present and taking initiative in their academic career. We hope to host many more celebrations for our students so they can enjoy their time at Jane Addams High School and feel accomplished for their hard work.

KNVCoS Restorative Practice Ambassador Program
Restorative Practices Ambassadors (RPAs) are 4th and 5th grade elementary students who are in our new KNVCoS Restorative Practice Ambassador Program at our six of our elementary schools. This program embraces and fosters the students' ability to build community and resolve conflict in a positive manner. It is an all-stakeholders approach to creating a positive climate with the guidance of many staff members such as teachers, administrators, and classified personnel. However, the RPAs are taking ownership of the process and taking the lead in doing morning greetings at the entrance gates for all students. Also, they are visiting lower-grade classes to do Check-Ins to build connections and positive relationships. Finally, RPAs are monitoring the yard to resolve conflicts using Restorative Questions to allow students to listen to each other and make amends. We have seen great success in all aspects of this program, in that, students are teaching students how to be kind and although we may have conflict, we can resolve it in a kind way because we care about each other.
So, if you see one of our RPAs in their purple vest, please celebrate them. Let them know how much you appreciate their smiles, positive attitude, and hard work in helping everyone feel they belong and are seen and cared for.
See below for some pictures of the RPAs at Darby Elementary in action!
