Our goal is to celebrate students who consistently demonstrate good character. These students earn recognition for their positive behavior through the Path to Greatness recognition program. This initiative has been implemented to honor those who demonstrate the core values below.
- Be Respectful
- Be Safe
- Be Responsible
- Be a Problem Solver
Path to Greatness
Path to Greatness follows a positive behavioral approach to learning by establishing behavioral supports and a social culture needed for all students at MAM to achieve social, emotional and academic success. It is a school-wide system of support that includes proactive strategies for defining, teaching and supporting appropriate student behaviors with the goal of creating a positive school environment. Attention is focused on creating and sustaining primary (school-wide), secondary (classroom), and tertiary (individual) systems of support that improve all aspects of a student's life.
All students have the opportunity to earn Path to Greatness Tickets when they exhibit these core values. Tickets from every grade level are drawn weekly for prizes. In addition, monthly classroom meetings will be held to discuss the Firebird Word of the Month. These are the character education attributes listed in the district calendar. Every month a student from each class will be recognized and given a Path to Greatness button. This is someone who has exceptionally displayed our core values along with the Firebird Word of the Month.
