"The Golden Attendance Award"

   

Attendance is very important!!! In an effort to promote consistant attendance, we incorporated the "Golden Attendance Award".  The grade level that has the highest % in attendance each week will possess the coveted "A" Award for the next week.  Fourth graders, Brittany Spradley, Lexi Waldrup and Martin Roberts, are proudly displaying the trophy.  Fourth grade won for the first week of the competition!! Way to go!! 

Also, students who have perfect attendance for the second nine weeks will have their name displayed on the "Golden Wall".   If they miss a day, their name will be taken down.  All students who have their name on the wall at the end of the nine weeks will receive a prize from Ms. Ishee.  Work Hard!!!!

"Counselor Appreciation"

     

Ms. Nafiyah Younes and Ms. Jessica Flynt join the Glade Hornets for a short time during their internship.  Both ladies brought many awesome ideas to our school.  "Shooting for Kindness" was created by Ms. Flynt.  Students, faculty and staff were able to give "shout outs" to students who showed kindness to them throughout the day.  Our PBIS program was enhanced by Ms. Younes.  She created many new helpful hint posters that were posted around the school.  Each of these ladies did an awesome job and will be an asset to any school setting.  Ms. Cook, Glade's Counselor, is an awesome mentor for these ladies. 

During "School Counselor Week", Ms. Flynt and Ms. Younes helped to show appreciation to Ms. Cook.  The faculty and staff shared a lunch with her to show how greatly she is appreciated at Glade!!!

Ms. Roberts' Kindergarten class reading and writing during center time.

 

Mrs. Vicki Johnson’s sixth grade reading/language class, after reading the novel Hoot by Carl Hiaasan, completed research projects on endangered animals. The novel was about the burrowing owl, which is on the list of protected animals. Each student chose an animal to research from an abbreviated list of protected animals. Students had to write an essay describing the animal and telling about its status as a protected animal. The students also had to present a visual aid. Some students did PowerPoints, some did poster boards, and some did dioramas representing their animals. Mrs. Johnson’s students learned a lot about these animals and what makes them endangered.

 

Second Graders at Glade visit with a K-9 Officer

They studied community helpers and read the story "Officer Buckle and Gloria".  Officer Doug Shephard and Shadow  came to visit and discuss the importance of having a K-9 Officer and the many jobs he performs.
