The Pennridge School District has undertaken an initiative to reinforce social and emotional learning in our students. Social and emotional learning skills include the ability to recognize and manage emotions; care about and respect others; develop positive relationships; make good decisions; and behave responsibly and ethically.January’s T.A.K.E.S. P.R.I.D.E. theme is service.
We focus on one theme of positive behavior each month that promotes social and emotional learning. Every day, students hear a relevant famous quote, followed by a statement to help reinforce the quote. They are encouraged to think about and to practice the monthly theme in their lives, preparing themselves for success in school, in the world of work, and in their personal relationships.
Service is an act of helpful activity. People who give service take action to help someone or to do them a favor.

Scientist Jean Pennycook sent along this photo of a flag made by students in Peg Volak's class at JM Grasse. They created the flag in November to fly on the world's coldest continent.
As part of their lesson, students had the opportunity to visit Antarctica via a Skype video call with Ms. Pennycook, who is studying the penguins that breed there. The flag flew at Cape Royds penguin breeding colony, Ross Island, Antarctica on January, 2-3, 2017 and is now preserved with other flags from schools around the world that have flown there.
