What a slew of congratulations we have to pass on to FIVE of our students this week!
During Week 13 (and the start of Week 14), we have had the All-Star Student trophy go home almost every day!
Eliah from Grade Primary completed his "making good choices" punch card by having a positive attitude in PE class, not giving-up when trying new things, and by being inclusive of all his classmates during a game in class!
Jayna from Grade One took home the trophy last week as well. Jayna is always inclusive of all the students in her class, she's thoughtful and caring towards her classmates and she helps them to stay on task during our lessons as well!
Katerra, from Grade 5/6, took home the trophy after continually cleaning up, being principled in PE class, committing to learning a new skill and practising her new skills consistently during our Badminton unit!
Elias from Grade Two completed his "making good choices" punch card for continually helping his classmates, encouraging them to participate and stay on task, and for always helping out when it's time to clean-up!
Drew from Grade Primary took the trophy home last night, for being confident in his skills in PE, for trying his best when learning a new skill, and making more of an effort to listen and be on task during PE class time!
Keep up the awesome work, you five students! And make sure to give them a high-five if you see them around! :)
Draw for an iPad!
Congratulations to Alden, from Grade 5/6, for winning our mascot competition that ended on November 13th. For just over a week, students at PLFNS were encouraged to draw and/or create some form of mascot, that they think would be cool to represent and motivate our Physical Education program. Then, for a couple of days following that, students from all the classes voted for which mascot they wanted to win. Honourable mention goes to Jayna, from Grade 1/2, for her submission that was a very close runner-up! :)
So, without further ado, here's the story of Jumbo, our PLFNS PE Mascot:
"One day, Jumbo came from the jungle. He saw people in Phys. Ed. class were slow and not shooting hoops very well, so he came to offer his help and inspire everyone to get faster and stronger at soccer, baseball, basketball, football, lacrosse...and other sports and physical activities, too! Over time, Jumbo started to see everyone turn into better athletes! Some even started to turn into awesome gorillas, like him! Now that Jumbo is a part of our Pictou Landing School Community, he hopes to inspire everyone else in Pictou Landing to be just like him - faster and stronger! So look out for Jumbo - he's coming to a Phys. Ed. class near YOU!"
Last week, two more students took home the All-Star Student Award for their outstanding behaviour in Physical Education class, that earned them their culminating punches in their "making good choices" punch cards!
Alden is the first student in his class to receive this award. Alden always puts 100% effort into activities he partakes in during PE class, and he's also diligent at cleaning up and encouraging his classmates to do the same, at the end of class.
Ashlyn has also been stellar at cleaning up equipment at the end of class and helping her younger classmates to follow directions and be involved in all of our activities and games during class time.
Way to go, Alden and Ashlyn! Keep up the great work! :)
Wow! What a busy week we had last week, with All-Star Students in PE! We had THREE students get 20 punches in their "making good choices" punch cards, to wrap-up Week 10 of the school year! :)
Elton is has been making great choices in Phys Ed class, as well as outside of the classroom! He has been making healthier snack choices, has been confident in performing skills and other activities in class, and he can be an effective, positive role-model for his peers! :)
Drayson always tries his best in Phys Ed! Drayson is consistent in helping to tidy up the gym and put things away after class, and he never gives up when he's trying something new, no matter how frustrating it may be! :)
Jack always brings a super positive attitude into his Phys Ed classes and he's always ready for whatever activity we have planned. Jack is kind and caring to his classmates, and he's always picking up balls and equipment, even if no one else is! :)
Congratulations to these three awesome students; keep up the great work, guys! :)
Zander took home the All-Star Student trophy today, after getting his 20th punch in his "making good choices" punch card.
Zander demonstrates his true athletic potential when he tries out new activities and commits to "getting it right" even if it's something new. He also helps clean up and encourages his peers to stay on task during P.E. class.
Congratulations on being the first All-Star Student of November, Zander; keep up the great work! :)
Mark your calendar!
We have ANOTHER All-Star Student in Physical Education (PE) to celebrate! :)
Kallan in Grade 1 is our SECOND All-Star PE Student this year...and this month! Kallan completed his 'making great choices' punch card on Tuesday, and took the trophy home for one night this week. Kallan is consistently principled, on-task and is super helpful tidying up in PE class. Way to go, Kallan; keep up the great work! :)
