Hartley holds monthly assemblies, which are focused on a celebration of our students’ safe, respectful, responsible, and caring behavior. Staff members plan these assemblies to provide character education connected to our PBIS program!
The monthly assemblies include a presentation of the Hartley Hero awards for one student in each grade level (Preschool through 5th grade), cafeteria helper, and staff member. Teachers and staff nominate Heroes based on consistent demonstration of the qualities we strive for at Hartley.
Staff members also recognize students every day by handing out “Golden Tickets” when they observe a student demonstrating one of the building expectations. At the assemblies, each grade level combines their earned tickets, and Mr. Rust draws one name from each grade level. These students are Honorable Hornets. The winner then gets to select a reward for his or her whole class, such as an extra recess or hat day.
