We plan to take the entire team on at least one field trip this year. We will go to Rock Island State Park for an interdisciplinary unit in the fall. You will be notified if other trips are planned.
The Pathfinder teacher believe that hard work should be rewarded. Each six-weeks, students who complete at least 85% or more of their homework in each academic class and hove no failing grades will be invited to participate in a special activity. Students who have perfect attendance will also be rewarded. These reward trips might involve a walk to Dairy Queen, or Pizza Hut for lunch or a bus trip to the movies, the skating rink, or the bowling alley. We are always looking for new incentives to encourage students to do their best!
If a student misbehaves and/or breaks school rules on any school field trip or reward trip, he or she may become ineligible to attend class or team field trips for the remainder of the school year. This also includes if the student has been assigned After School Instruction, In-School Suspension, or Out-of0School Suspension.
Students who complete work and behave well are given the opportunity to a "break" at the snack and drink machines. This may occur several times a week and is considered a reward.
