Caught in Pastorius! Doing the Right Thing
By Steven Hawkins, Assistant Principal

     The mighty F.D. Pastorius Cougars are on a hunt. The students at the Pastorius Elementary
School are prowling throughout the building the way they have been taught according to our
School-Wide Rules. In an effort to improve school climate, student achievement scores on standardized tests, and general safety for all who enter the building, the staff has implemented
school-wide rules that guide conduct throughout the school day.
     To reinforce positive student behaviors, our staff implemented a student rewards system called "Caught-Doing-the-Right-Thing." Students who are caught displaying positive behaviors are rewarded with tickets. After a student receives a ticket, his or her name is entered into a school-wide weekly drawing, where 20 students are selected at random.
     Every other month students have an opportunity to win “Big Ticket” prizes, such as Sony PS2s, CD/ Stereos, Digital Cameras, and the list goes on. Every adult staff member in our building has tickets to hand out to the students for displaying positive behaviors and using good manners.
     If your child has not been bringing home tickets, please encourage them to get “Caught-Doing-The-Right-Thing” TODAY!!!!!.
