Honor pins

It's a tradition at Bradoaks to have flag ceremony each Wednesday morning.  They have been doing it for more than 20 years now.  One thing they do is award honor pins.   So what is an honor pin you ask?  Well the actual item is just a button kind of badge that has the school logo on it and the words honor pin.  For the kids it's much more than that.  It's an elete club that students gain entry to as they demonstrate good "bobcat ROARing".  How does one "ROAR" you ask?  Well it's being a good citizen basically but, you demonstrate you have Respect,  you are On task, has a positive Attitude, and you are Responsible.  Each week teachers may award one  student per class the pin.

The second week of school Lydia was chosen by her teacher.  To see how excited she was is an under statement.   To see the look of dejection on Audreys face would also be an understatement.   The ceremony didn't happen last week as the teachers and principle were taking the ice bucket challenge for ALS.  The really great things was that the following week Audrey was picked for the pin.  So in the end they both get them on the same day.  Though Lydia will be the first to tell u that she got her pink First!

Update:  The following week Mr. Myles was awarded the honor pin by his teacher.  We are off to a great year!  

I love my little honor pin bobcats!
