• Assist the new student at the end of the day by helping them locate their bus;
• If it is needed, help the new student a second day;
• Participate in a new student welcome social;
• Create and produce positive affirmation items for faculty and staff members;
• Serve as tour guides for students and parents during the rising sixth grade evening elective open house;
• Assist with the rising sixth grade summer transition program.
PUMA Pride students may also hand out programs for the Veteran’s Day Assembly and for the RISE program. Some PUMA Pride students read stories to our zoned special needs’ students.
Teachers recommend students for the PUMA Pride program whom have demonstrated positive leadership skills (maturity, dependability, kindness, courtesy, desire to include and welcome other students), and whom have shown an interest in helping others. Students are required to complete an essay and must attend monthly program meetings, which are held during the school day.
