Rebeka gets the nod for SOTW this time! She did an excellent job for the skipping team; was helpful to Brayden while catching him up in science; and she showed kindness in laying out everyone’s art work to make it easier to find at the carpet. Super job, Rebeka!

Two SOTW winners this time around, both for single yet important reasons. SOTW #1 is Brayden! During our surprise fire alarm on Wednesday, he was a model student when it came to following expectations. He was the only one to remain in one place and focus on his job, which is to stand in line and await further instructions. Great job, Brayden. I hope others will follow your lead in future fire drills.
The second SOTW award goes to Jenna for kindness. Jenna voluntarily gave up her slushy drink to Austin when his was spilled and he was left without any at Adventure Bay. It brought a smile to an otherwise disappointed student. Exceptional compassion there, Jenna!
Picking up his second SOTW award of the year is Reece. Reece tied for first with 11 Dojo points over the week; was the most focused boy on the “boys’ side” of the seating plan until it was rearranged; and he got a compliment from Austin for being so helpful with him. All in all, a good week, Reece!

Payton picks up her second SOTW award of the year! Some good responses in reading and science, plus a slight spike in participation are reasons for her selection. Payton is a consistent 100% performer in Class Dojo too, and was 4th in points for the week. Even though she picks on me (a lot), she certainly earned it this week. Well done, Payton!

We start April off with not one, not two but three…THREE Students of the Week (insert the Count’s laugh)!!
Looking back on the wonderful cooperation I saw at Gesstwood, I asked the two leaders who stood out in their mind. The first leader (Bethany? Tall one, wore sunglasses…help me out!) singled out Paige as being a “quiet, positive spirit” who encouraged others, led by example, and challenged herself to do the high ropes on a second attempt.
The other leader (name?) selected Calvin, mainly for his encouragement of one student during the high ropes climb, and ensuring that that same student felt included in the activities being done by bringing him closer to the group. Love to see that inclusiveness, Calvin!
I, personally, was impressed by the stellar leadership and communication from Hannah. She was instrumental in getting her group to walk the A-frame (Bob?) from one side to the other; and in devising strategies for getting everyone on the the “islands” during the rope swing.
While I was impressed with everyone on that day, these three should be commended for their outstanding leadership and cooperation, which is what Ropes is all about. Leave your supportive comments for them here.
Austin earns his first SOTW award after a very positive week! Both Mrs. Hewitt and I agree that he was very productive in class (especially his concentration in art), and he picked up 100% on Class Dojo. A hope it’s a sign of things to come, Austin, keep going!

Priya gets the nod for SOTW from before the March Break. Two trophies to her credit (word study and science), and leading the class in Dojo points for the week were all contributing factors for her selection. She also showed kindness toward a classmate during the auction. Well done, Priya!
