Little Wolverines recognized for PAWSitive behavior
Several Wadena-Deer Creek Elementary students were recognized for demonstrating good behavior through the school's PAW's program. PAWS (Positive Always ready Working together Safe) supports positive behavior for WDC students in grades K-4.
A student can be nominated by any staff member, not just their teacher. They are nominated by exhibiting positive behavior and helping others. The students are given a "yellow ticket," which they put it in a bucket that Principal Louis Rutten draws from, usually twice per month. The prizes are all donated from local and area businesses.
PAWS is a result of ENVOY (Educational Non-verbal Yardsticks) training the paraprofessional teams took part in this summer. Currently, 35 classroom teachers and paraprofessionals have received the ENVOY training.
Way to go, Wolverines!
