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.
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.
May's “T.A.K.E.S. P.R.I.D.E.” theme is dependability.
Being dependable is defined as being trustworthy. If you are dependable, you are believable and reliable. A dependable person works hard or endures in a responsibility until the job is complete.

HIGH SCHOOL HEROES
The Pennridge School Board recently recognized 11th graders Hayden Flanagan and Erik Poirier for their quick thinking and selfless actions in preventing what could have been a major catastrophe.
On May 4 at approximately 7:05am, Hayden ran into the main office to report a vehicle on fire in the parking lot. He grabbed a fire extinguisher from the lobby and ran back out to the vehicle.
As Hayden got back to the vehicle, Erik already had taken a fire extinguisher from his vehicle and began to address the fire. Together, they managed to prevent the blaze from spreading to adjoining vehicles. Who knows what might have happened had they not acted so decisively and without regard to their own safety.
