T.A.K.E.S. P.R.I.D.E.

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.

April’s T.A.K.E.S.  P.R.I.D.E. theme is initiative.

Initiative means making decisions and taking action on your own without the advice or help from others.People who demonstrate initiative take steps to make things happen. They design a strategy to solve a problem or make a plan to achieve something they desire.

This month, take time to practice initiative. Some ways you can do this include: 
  • helping someone in need even before the person asks;
  • inviting a bullying victim to join in a game with you and your friends; 
  • doing what is right without waiting to be told;
  • using time wisely to solve problems and accomplish goals. 

Initiative is one of the top qualities today’s employers are seeking. Those who demonstrate initiative will be the ones most likely to be hired and promoted. At school and at work, those with initiative will be those most likely to achieve success!
