Western Pines Students To ROAR On May 27

Students at Western Pines Middle School are looking forward to enjoying a day of activities to close out the school year as they will take part in the school’s ROAR Extravaganza for the fourth year in a row on May 27.

A culmination to the year’s Positive Behavior Initiative, the celebration will honor students who have exemplified Western Pines Middle School’s commitment to excellence by promoting the ROAR guidelines — respecting themselves and others, owning their behavior and actions, always being safe on campus and reaching their personal and academic goals.

Throughout the school year, teacher and administrators have handed out “ROAR Cards” to students who showed these characteristics. Students then turned the cards in and were eligible for drawings for prizes such as gift cards, school supplies, books, sweet treats, posters and more. At the end of this year, any student who has turned in five or more cards will be invited to participate in the ROAR Extravaganza.

Approximately 300 students will be excused from class to enjoy such activities as face painting, dodgeball, silent speedball, graffiti art, a game show and more.

Teachers and administrators are pleased with how well the students have taken to the ROAR program and look forward to many more exciting ways to promote positive behavior and school spirit.
