PALS Club Day

PALS Club Day

Our first PALS Club Day was Friday, September 28. 3rd-6th grade students had the opportunity to participate in clubs related to their interests. 


PALS - Partnering at Locust Fork Schools - teachers stay with homerooms and spend time with EACH student going over student academic goals and personal goals. The homeroom teachers are the adult advocates by helping students review their strengths and weaknesses and leading students to set academic goals to better themselves academically in the areas of reading and math. Teachers also help their students think outside the box by leading them to establish his/her own personal goals by sharing their own personal goals. For example, I have a personal goal of trying to eat healthier. I am trying to meet that goal by making better choices when I eat fast food. We share our own personal struggles with students so they can see a need in establishing personal goals and a path of meeting those goals.

 By serving as the advocate on PALS Day - teachers are leading students into accepting ownership of their own learning and sometimes even career path. We are leading students in setting goals and creating an action plan for reaching those goals. Teachers also lead students in understanding where they are in the learning process and areas in which they need to grow and get better in by reviewing and analyzing their data. Even K-2 students can learn to understand what they are good at and why they may struggle in a subject as well.  

CLUB DAY - We are also serving as adult advocates for a group of students who share similar interests by choosing to participate in a club of interest. This is a time to celebrate our differences and make connections with other people who share common interests but could be totally different from them at the same time. These clubs have mixed abilities, ages, and genders and lead us into accepting people for who they are no matter what race, age, gender, or academic/athletic ability.

Since we have limited these days to once every other month, it is VITAL we teach these traits and characteristics not only on Club/Pals Day but everyday within our classrooms.

We lead students into taking PRIDE in their work and lead them to know and understand their data. This is what it is all about!
