New this Year at Aquila and Park Spanish...
Being a Playgound Pal means you are safe, caring, responsible, open-minded and respectful! The job of the special helpers from each class, grades 1-5 is to wear an identifying vest and to always say, "YES" when a friends asks you to play. The playground pals are also charged with looking all around the playground for any friends who need a friend to play with. There is a short training where these students will receive their Playground Pal Student Handbooks and practice their assertiveness. The group's main focus is inclusion and being upstanders.
This has been a great joint venture at AQ and PSI between the school's counselors and social workers!
