What is the PRIDE Award and the Falcon Nest?
At Fireside, positive approaches for appropriate behaviors are highlighted throughout the school in a variety of ways. Students are recognized school-wide for having positive behavior and making good choices. This year, students demonstrating positive behavior will be able to sign their names on a Falcon in their homeroom. These Falcons will be displayed weekly. Students will also have an opportunity to earn Fireside PRIDE Awards. This award may be given to any Preschool through 5th grader who shows personal growth that goes “above and beyond” and demonstrates one or more of the P.R.I.D.E. attributes. New this year, a student may also nominate another student. The recipient of the award will make a special trip to Mrs. Keppler’s office, phone home to celebrate the achievement, and the student's photo will be taken and displayed in the hallway and Fireside Chat. At Fireside, everyday we encourage our kids to DO and BE their best… and most important- show their Fireside P.R.I.D.E.!
