Can't Hide Our Wildcat Pride
It has been a great month at Glanton-Hindsman Elementary School as we celebrate the accomplishments of our students. This month, we implemented a new way to recognize our students in the cafeteria who are constantly exhibiting great behavior. Students can earn both individual and class rewards during lunch. Each week, classes earn tickets for doing a great job while eating. At the end of the week, the class with the most tickets for their grade level receives popsicles. Students who are being models can earn tokens that they can exchange for an ice cream.
Outside of the cafeteria, we are celebrating our academics, growth, character, and behavior. This week, students in grades 1st-5th are taking the STAR Reading and Math test, celebrating their progress for the growth they have made since we took it in August, and setting new goals for when they take it again in December. We encourage you to talk with your children about where they are and where they are going and help them to develop a plan to get there. Goal setting is one of our priorities because it teaches students a number of positive characteristics such as perseverance and focus.
Thank you for all you do with your children at home to benefit their education. If you have any questions about what you can be doing to help your child at home, please contact your child’s teacher.
Way to go Wildcats!
Our Wildcats are off to a great start earning tokens and tickets in the cafeteria for good behavior choices. Individual students can earn tokens and cash them in for ice cream. Classes are working together to earn tickets. The class in each grade level earning the most tickets during the week, will get ice pops on Friday!
Let's Go Get It!
Live Your Dream!

We also kept track of the total number of words our students read in the month of August and rewarded the top class in each grade level with ice cream. Students can contribute to their class word count by reading and passing AR quizzes.
