To promote Tiger Pride, Dickinson Avenue Elementary recently had a week filled with activities reflecting the R.O.A.R.S. campaign – respect, ownership, attitude, responsibility, and safety. Each day of the week represented a letter in the acronym. Teachers incorporated each idea into morning meetings and classroom lessons, and gave students the opportunity to talk to each other about how they related to those themes.

The end of the week culminated with a variety show. Students read poems, sang songs, put on skits, and played Jeopardy, with every “act” reflecting the R.O.A.R.S. campaign.

“It was not only a fun week, but a meaningful week,” said Principal Essenfeld. “We’re always looking for ways to help our students grow socially and emotionally, in happy and positive directions.”
