January has been a quick and fun-filled month at Prospect Lake. Our January school assembly focused on the virture of Responsibility. Mrs. H, Mrs. Bossence, and Mrs. Sinats’ classes shared their Responsibility Goals with the school. In our daily announcements, student leaders have shared examples of the ways they have shown responsibility in the school. Some student examples include:

  • “My name is Mila and I am a member of the PAWS squad. I show responsibility by attending PAWS Squad meetings and making poster for our school to help promote events”

  • “My name is Rylan and I am a member of PAWS squad and Lunch Monitor. As a lunch monitor, I show responsibility by always showing up to my assigned class and doing my job of helping kids.”

  • “My name is Leah and I am a member of the PAWS Picks. I show responsibility by helping to shelve books in our learning commons.”

  • My name is Bryson and I am a member of PAWS squad. As a member of PAWS squad, I show responsibility by working respectfully with others and help to make sure our projects are done well.
