Celebrating our successes is what brings us closer to understanding not only what makes us feel better, but, more importantly, how we can affect those around us.  As part of the IKE Path, at the beginning of the school year, students are taught expected behaviors at various stations (classroom, hallway, bathroom, lunch, recess, and bus) around the building.  In the ensuing days, weeks, and months ahead, staff members are able to award students with special "IKE Path" tickets for displaying expected positive behaviors.  These tickets are then put into a weekly classroom raffle drawing.  At the end of the week, your child's classroom teacher will pull one ticket from the classroom raffle hat.  Every Friday morning, I will read all of the IKE Path drawing names that were pulled from each classroom's raffle drawing.  Instead of one ticket being chosen, the early childhood classes choose a "Super Friend" of the week for a student who has displayed good decision-making choices.  After the names have been read over the intercom, the students come down to the office to receive an official "IKE Path" ribbon and additional Dr. Seuss prize(s).  Once we have all of our recipients assembled, we sing the IKE School Pride Song together over the intercom.  On that same note, I want to thank Mrs. Gember, our music teacher, for composing the IKE School Pride Song over 7 years ago.
