Allendale Elementary Students Rewarded for Great Citizenship

Have you ever been “caught” doing something good? Something that came so naturally to you that you didn’t even think twice about it?

Now imagine this: the students at Springview and Evergreen Elementary Schools have been caught being exemplary citizens 4,000 times in the month of January alone!

Our elementary schools operate around the “3R’s: Responsibility, Respect, and Ready to Learn.”  As students model these three traits, staff members from bus drivers to recess supervisors have the privilege of “catching” them and rewarding them with a “Falcon Ticket.”

To motivate the kids and provide some sunshine during these snowy winter months, the elementary principals put forth a goal to “Fly to 4,000.”  If the student body (K-3) could collectively accumulate 4,000  Falcon Tickets during the month of January, the school would be awarded an assembly by The NED Show!

Students easily achieved this goal and enjoyed an action-packed afternoon full of comedy and magic that encouraged students to Never give up, Encourage others, and Do your best! Students were challenged to ponder a few questions as they dream of the future:

  • “What’s something you’d like to be a champion at?”
  • “What are your goals?”
  • “How will you reach your goals?”

Below is a video of some of the show’s highlights from over the years:

“The NED Show’s positive message fits in well with our 3 R’s message — they really compliment each other perfectly, so that while the kids are learning what NED stands for, they can tie it back to the expectations we already have of them at Allendale,” said Assistant Principal Ryan Coghill.

Amazingly, the NED Show is a “Pay It Forward” assembly that came free of charge to our school because of the efforts of a previous host school. To participate in NED’s free assembly program, each school is asked to commit to a 5 day sale of their famous yo-yos. All sales “pay” for the next school to enjoy a free “Pay It Forward” assembly!

This week we’ll be joining the long line of schools doing just this. Yo-yo’s are for sale for $7, $10, and $15. If you’re interested in helping Allendale Pay it Forward, contact either elementary office to place your order.
