P.B.I.S. Olympics Held at Palm Pointe

P.B.I.S. Olympics Held at Palm Pointe

Students at Palm Pointe Educational Research School @ Tradition recently participated in a school wide P.B.I.S. (Positive Behavior Interventions and Support) fundraising event.  Students were able to come outside by grade level and participate in Olympic type games.  There were different areas set up with an obstacle course, football toss and field goal kick, soccer, kickball, basketball, flag football and a dance area.  The students went around to each area during the hour.  At the end of the event, all students received a snack, drink, and small trinket with the United States red, white and blue theme.  It was a great turn out and a fun event for all students that participated.

Pictured are eighth grade students using hula hoops to show the rings used as a symbol for the Olympics.

Family Care Council Presents at MSE

Family Care Council Presents at MSE

Melody Hearn of the Family Care Council presented information to our Morningside Elementary students on Wednesday, October 26, 2016.  She discussed the challenges and daily struggles of children and adults with Down Syndrome.  To help educate the students, Melody had some hands-on demonstrations to show them how difficult it is to talk, play, write, and do everyday tasks.  The students benefited from the engaging presentation and had a much better understanding of disabilities by the end of the program!
