Hello PG family and friends!

Recently, Mr. Lyons and I presented our school-wide behavioral model (ASK) to students. With our new mascot being the owl, we were able to have Wendy from the Science Center pay us a visit to introduce students to one of their gorgeous owls. During this assembly, we also introduced the ASK model. ASK stands for the following:

A - Appropriate
S - Safe
K - Kind

The goal of the program is for students to always STOP and THINK to themselves ASK: Is it appropriate? Is it safe? Is it kind? We will showcase the model in various places this year so students can understand how it applies to our school community and beyond. We started with the hallway. ASK in the hallway looks and sounds like the following:

Appropriate hallway behavior is:
Quiet voice / voices off
Quiet wave
Calm body
Keep our hands to ourselves (not on another person’s body or work)

Safe hallway behavior is:
Walking feet
Staying in line
Looking forward
Following the adult’s directions
Walk on the right side of the hallway
Keep your hands, feet and objects to yourself

Kind hallway behavior is:
Quiet wave to a friend or teacher
Keep personal space between you and the person in front of you
Hold the door for a friend
Keep the hallways clean and tidy
