5 Star Wizard Hat Students

Congratulations to last week's 5 Star Wizard Hat students! They were recognized by their teachers for positive behavior. 

Last week's students include: Maya Bartelt, Kole Roberts, Nora Castelo, Ruby Bullock, Alejandra Locia-Anota, Kenna Stow, Ian Stow, Saiya Langfels, Angi Cairns, Annika Morton, Amelia Hall, Marlowe Connors, Quinn O'Connor, Evan Carmichael, Xavier Pena, Lara Olsthoorn, Olivia Harris, Denis Zlatanov, Salvador Aceves, Giovanna Golan, James Mason, Kai Stutz, Lucy Frenkel, Nola Lake, Saoirse Collins, Clessie Mugisha, Dallin Simpson, Jacob Chase-Cho, Ben Blackmun, Andy Smith, William Bollmann, Patrick Monahan, Dean Frenkel.

Wizard Hats are given throughout UPark to celebrate students' good choices and positive behavior. We use a common vocabulary and teach Critical Thinking skills using the BrainWise curriculum.  Each week there is a random drawing of 2 students done by classroom teachers. These children are photographed and receive a token of our appreciation. 
*At the end of each month we will be donating all clothing in the lost and found and anything left in the halls(all clothing will go into our little red school house in our parking lot).
